STRONG SHOWING BY SELEX AT DSA
21 Apr 08. SELEX Sistemi Integrati, a Finmeccanica Company had a strong participation at DSA in Hall 4, Stand 4073.
In Malaysia and as well as in other countries in the South-East Asia region, SELEX Sistemi Integrati has a relevant presence as a leading supplier of electronic systems for air defence, naval applications and air traffic management.
The Italian company’s long tradition in Malaysia is demonstrated by the presence of two important companies established with the local industries: Comlenia, a joint company between SELEX Sistemi Integrati and Comintel, which provides naval logistics and technical support for systems on board the Laksamana Class corvettes of the Royal Malaysian Navy; AAT – Advanced Air Traffic -, a joint company between SELEX Sistemi Integrati and other Malaysian equity participants, for technical support and maintenance of ATC/ATM radar systems.
The Malaysian market is deemed strategically important for SELEX Sistemi Integrati. In fact, since the Nineties the Company has provided many primary radars, secondary radars and ATC control centres in quite all Malaysian airports.
In the air defence sector the National Air Defence of Malaysia has acquired three RAT 31 DL radar systems RAT 31/DL, the most sold radar system into NATO in the last five years, and command and control systems.
The company is also actively pursuing the design and the implementation of systems and relevant software to provide proper protection to coastal States’ interests in the EEZ – Exclusive Economic Zone. In this framework SELEX Sistemi Integrati has proposed the Vessel Traffic Management System (VTMS) to the Malaysian Coast Guard (MMEA). The system provides advanced solutions for control and management of safe vessel traffic, monitoring the maritime environment and supporting Search & Rescue (SAR) operations at sea.
At DSA 2008, into Finmeccanica SELEX Sistemi Integrati presented some of its most important products and programs,

SELEX Sistemi Integrati is at the forefront of long range radar technology with RAT31/DL, a proven state-of the art, 3D long range radar system, available in fixed (FADR-Fixed Air Defence Radar), transportable and mobile (Deployable Air Defence Radar – DADR) configurations.
The sensor is effective to a range of over 500 kilometres, is an advanced L-band solid state phased array, 3D surveillance radar, with an advanced architecture incorporating multiple simultaneous phase controlled pencil beams, all proven solutions already in use in many radars of the same family.
RAT 31/DL is able to operate in full frequency agility mode, guaranteeing resistance against Anti-Radiation Missiles (ARM) and Electronic Counter Measures (ECM).
RAT 31DL meets the latest NATO standards, has full NATO interoperability, and has been developed to satisfy future defence requirements.
