Selex Galileo To Build On Strategic Partnership With India

SELEX Galileo, a Finmeccanica Company, regards the Indian market as an important strategic area and a key growth opportunity. The Company is working closely with the Defence Research & Development Agencies in India and with Indian industries in order to jointly collaborate in the creation of new products and capabilities both for the armed forces of India and for the wider export market. At the upcoming DEFEXPO 2010, SELEX Galileo will be pursuing opportunities connected with the need to modernise existing platforms with next-generation sensor systems focusing on Surveillance, Protection, Land & Battlespace and Simulation & Training.

SELEX Galileo has a significant heritage in working with India, delivering a number of the Company's most successful products. These have ranged from protection systems and ESM to Precision Approach Radar and target drones. Activities in the country have also included a repair facility and the training of Indian personnel. SELEX Galileo is currently pursuing opportunities in the maritime patrol and surveillance domain, related to retrofit programmes for the Sea King and Kamov-28 helicopters of the Indian Navy.

The Company's ATOS (Airborne Tactical Observation and Surveillance) system provides wide area and targeted surveillance (overt or covert), anti-submarine warfare and environmental and border control. ATOS can be integrated with Seaspray, the Company's cutting edge Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar technology. For Unmanned Aerial Systems and for helicopters, SELEX Galileo offers the smaller, lighter PicoSAR AESA radar, which provides an unrivalled all weather capability. In the Land & Battlespace sector,

SELEX Galileo is also pursuing various programmes for the upgrading of armoured vehicles as well as those for the enhancement of land troops' awareness, effectiveness and protection where equipment can be linked together within a common tactical network. One solution is the battle-proven Laser Inertial Navigation and Pointing System (LINAPS) which provides pin-point navigation and pointing accuracy for artillery and is in service, and in theatre, with several armed forces. The Company's other solutions include the modular and proven 3rd Generation Fire Control System TURMS/T which is a significant upgrade for Main Battle Tanks such as the T-72, the electro-optic suite for the dismounted soldier, and the acoustic hostile locator HALO.

To provide a solid base for the growth of the Company's Electronic Warfare and Protection business in India, SELEX Galileo last year signed a Memorandum of Understanding with BEL to explore EWrelated business opportunities for the Indian market. The Company is currently promoting the combatproven HIDAS defensive aid suite that delivers world-class protection for helicopters, as well as radar decoys for naval vessels and aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon.
