Selex SI Wins Kuwaiti Contract
SELEX Sistemi Integrati, a Finmeccanica company, signed a contract for a value of 16 million dollars to provide the Kuwait General Directorate of Civil Aviation with air traffic control systems.
In particular, SELEX Sistemi Integrati will equip the international airport of Kuwait City, the most important in the country, with an ATCR-33/S primary radar, a SIR-S secondary radar and a ground station ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast), a high performance system for en-route, terminal area and airport surveillance applications.
The contract, which will last about 3 years, also includes the supply of the logistic and post sales support and the relevant civil works.
With this agreement the company reinforces its commercial presence within the Gulf Area.
In the Middle East area, SELEX Sistemi Integrati has shown its own competences in the field of airport, maritime and coastal surveillance systems. The impressive new Doha Airport in Qatar and the Bahrain airport will be completely equipped by the systems and sensors designed and realized by the Finmeccanica, while the airports of Jeddah and Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia, have already systems made by the Italian company at their disposal.
Among the most recent contracts signed by SELEX Sistemi Integrati in the area, there is also a supply to Yemen of a VTS (Vessel Traffic System) coastal surveillance system, which will contribute in the strengthening of the country's coastal security.
