Selex Elsag awarded Brazilian Army contract

22nd June 2012 - 09:17 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Selex Elsag has announced that it has signed a contract with the Brazilian Army completing the upgrade of the SISTAC tactical communications system.

This award follows, and completes, the agreement signed at the beginning of 2011, encompassing an overall investment of over 5 million euro and a three-year extended guarantee. The company made the announcement on 21 June 2012.

SISTAC is a shelter-based system for tactical communications, which will be deployed throughout the region under the jurisdiction of Comando Militar do Sul to provide support to the Brazilian Army Third Division. It is the first system of this type to be acquired by the Brazilian Armed Forces.

The system comprises a multi-service integrated digital communications network, able to support voice and data services, both coded and uncoded, and to interface with external networks and single channel radio systems.

As a result of the comprehensive upgrade, the new version can make use of next-generation radio links, multi-service switch routers, crypto devices, and an advanced network management system. All these elements create a data-focused architecture, which represents the first significant step in the implementation of Network Enabled Capabilities within the Brazilian Army.

Selex Elsag said the upgrade activities will be completed at the beginning of 2013.
