ITT completes milestone on Swedish surveillance programme
ITT Corporation announced the successful completion of Production Acceptance Testing (PAT) for the first system of the Reliability and Modification (REMO) 870 Program to modernize Sweden's coastal surveillance radar systems.
For the past 20 years, Sweden's military forces have depended on ITT radars to defend against terrorists, pirates and other unwanted intruders. In May 2008, ITT began a series of design upgrades based on ITT's new LCR-2020 radar and its integrated, turnkey coastal surveillance system, the SABER-2020. This successful PAT milestone marks the first of multiple production deliveries - which will occur for the next few years - of the upgraded system.
"Our solution enables the Swedish military to scan the entire coastline and track potential threats on the surface and at low elevations, while providing excellent, all-weather detection," said Bill Devlin, vice president and general manager of ITT's Radar Reconnaissance and Acoustic Systems business area. "This milestone affirms our longstanding relationship as a major supplier to the Swedish Defense Forces and strengthens our position as a premier international supplier of integrated coastal surveillance solutions."
Representatives from the Swedish Defence Material Administration, the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters and ITT Electronic Systems were present for the two days of test activities in Van Nuys, Calif. The PAT process verified that the first production system was ready to be placed into operation immediately.
"We are very satisfied with the test results for this first system and we are looking forward to the coming deliveries according to the plan," said Major Ulf Finér, program manager at the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters.
