Selex ES and NIIDAR sign agreement to develop joint promotional activities

- Rome, Italy

Selex ES, a Finmeccanica company, and NIIDAR (Scientific and Research Institute for Long-Distance Radio Communications), a Russian Open Joint Stock Company, have signed a cooperation agreement that will see the two companies promoting surveillance systems internationally. The systems will be based on radars produced in the Russian Federation and Italy.

The two companies have identified radars such as Selex ES’s Lyra family and NIIDAR’s Laguna OTH (Over The Horizon) wave surface radar to realize an integrated maritime surveillance system which will be promoted in and outside of the Russian Federation.

The Lyra radar family is designed to address a number of demanding requirements in the security domain. These include the ability to act as an integral part of major systems for homeland protection and for Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) , as well as a part of a field deployment in its man-portable radar configuration. The Lyra system architecture, together with its hardware and software components and the associated industrial processes, is designed in a modular and scalable way. This allows it to evolve to address other high priority applications such as Maritime surveillance and Surface Movement for airport and port security. The Lyra radar family includes the Lyra 10 series for Homeland Protection and Lyra 50 series for VTS applications and coastline surveillance. The Lyra family incorporates the best of Common Off The Shelf (COTS) hardware technology with proprietary state-of-the-art processing algorithms.

The Laguna OTH radar is a modern, highly efficient, civil use radar specially designed for ensuring law and order as well as providing for the surveillance of the 200-miles of exclusive economic zone of coastal states. The use of the surface-wave radar Laguna ensures substantial savings in manpower, material, technical and financial resources and also significantly reduces the overall cost of monitoring the surface and air environment. At the same time, continuity of control is ensured throughout the 200-mile economic zone.

The agreement will enhance the capabilities of both companies in their domestic markets as well as in the wider international marketplace.
