ERA Company made the announcement today that it had purchased the majority share (i. e. controlling interest) in the Slovak R&D company R-SYS, Ltd., its former subcontractor. ERA thus continues the process of acquisition of progressive companies in order to strengthen its market offerings with more complete solutions for civil and military air traffic control authorities.
“The merge of R-SYS and ERA is a result of long-term satisfactory cooperation between both companies. Our planned collaboration in the field of developing ATM and Command and Control systems conveniently completes the ERA product portfolio. ERA´s surveillance systems, integrated with our software for 2D/3D visualization, can provide integrated ATM solutions for customers worldwide,“ stated Marek Náhlík, R-SYS CEO.“
R-SYS product line consists of SW solutions in various domains such as Air Traffic Management, Surveillance Data Processing, Aeronautical Information Management, Command and Control (C2/C3I), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) or Digital Audio, Video & Data Recording Systems. Its new innovative system AISWeb provides flexible tools for 2D/3D visualization of the aircraft positions available to ATC controllers.
Displays and SW solutions by R-SYS in the role of subcontractor demonstrated their quality in several joint projects. ERA is therefore convinced that the future synergy of products and the cooperation of their R&D teams will bring modern solutions to the market. R-SYS, in contrast, will profit from the coordination of sales activities and ERA´s marketing experiences abroad.
