Elettronica has signed a contract to equip two Indonesian Navy 90m Offshore Patrol Vessels currently under construction at PT Daya Radar Utama shipyard with its Naval Radar Electronic Counter-Measures systems and further 90m Offshore Patrol Vessels are expected to be built by Indonesian shipyards for the Navy.
This is the first contract in Indonesia in the history of Elettronica, which since more than 70 years has been one of the world leader in the electronic warfare sector, and one of the best jamming-house in the world.
The Radar Electronic Counter Measures System provides naval platforms with an effective Electronic Defence using a powerful Active Phased Array Transmitter. The generated jamming techniques are segments of countermeasure programs that are automatically and adaptively selected for system effectiveness against both terminal missile attacks and long-range designation radar systems.
A modular design approach permits configuration adaptation to individual ship classes.
The Radar Electronic Counter-Measures System, selected by the Indonesian Navy, is composed of two JASS (Jamming Antenna Sub System) and can co-operate with other onboard EW sensors and actuators, is ITAR-free and can integrate with all currently available naval Combat Management Systems (CMS).
This contract is a result of the Elettronica’s strong intention to extend its presence in the South-East Asia, and in particular starts its new partnership with the Indonesian Navy, to which Elettronica could be a reliable long-term partner to increase the in-country EW capabilities matching any future requirements.
