30 Nov 06. Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI) is set to become involved in the manufacture, further development and marketing of one of the world’s most advanced long range maritime radar systems (HFSWR). The announcement, made today, follows the signing of a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) between leading global defence and aerospace company BAE Systems and HAI, the largest defence and aerospace industry in Greece. Under the terms of the MoU HAI will lead on all regional marketing activities for BAE Systems’ over the horizon maritime surveillance radar. The company will also take responsibility for the manufacture and integration of the technology with existing operational systems and command and control (C2) technology. The two partners anticipate potential international and domestic sales of more than €20 million over the next two to three years. As a result of this new alliance HAI will offer an integrated maritime surveillance solution, combining the long range surveillance capabilities of HFSWR with the short range surveillance of equipment already in service. The company will also oversee the integration of the SPIDER multi-sensor situational awareness C2 system.
