Elettronica to provide RECM systems for Indonesian Navy
Elettronica has signed a contract to equip Indonesian Navy vessels currently under construction at PT Daya Radar Utama shipyard with its naval radar electronic countermeasure systems.
As informed, the company will provide the systems for 90m offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) and further 90m offshore patrol vessels are expected to be built by Indonesian shipyards for the Indonesian Navy.
This contract is a result of Elettronica’s intention to extend its presence in South-East Asia, and in particular, the start of its new partnership with the Indonesian Navy.
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).
The system provides naval platforms with an effective electronic defence using an 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, according to the company.
To remind, Indonesian shipbuilder DRU Shipyards (PT Daya Radar Utama DRU) started with the construction of two new offshore patrol vessels for the Indonesian Navy in August last year.
