MEDAV receives Sisfron sensor order

13th May 2013 - 15:28 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab subsidiary MEDAV will supply electromagnetic signal-sensors for the first phase of the Brazilian Sisfron programme being carried out by the Brazilian Army. The programme will see an integrated border monitoring system developed across Brazil’s western border, contributing to regional security and fighting cross-border crimes.

MEDAV will deliver stationary as well as mobile remote controlled sensor-stations with monitoring and direction-finding capabilities in the frequency ranges HF, VHF and UHF. A regional centre for Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) monitoring and a training centre are also included in the contract.

Micael Johansson, head of Electronic Defence Systems, Saab, said: ‘Brazil is one of Saab’s most important markets and this order reinforces our presence and relationship with the country.’

Dr. Hans-Joachim Kolb, managing director, MEDAV, added: ‘This order is further testimony to MEDAV’s proven capability to provide leading solutions for threat detection and localisation. Sisfron is a big project for border security and its success will be highly reliant on the capabilities of technical sensors.’

The contract includes technology transfer by MEDAV. Deliveries under this order will take place between 2013 and 2016.
