Selex Galileo announces €20M worth of contracts

10th October 2012 - 11:42 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Selex Galileo has announced that it has received a number of new contracts in the support and service sectors worth a combined €20 million. The contracts relate mainly to the company’s Grifo radar and the Falco Unmanned Aerial System (UAS).

While the individual contract details were not released, Selex Galileo CEO Fabrizio Giulianini pointed to the company’s flexible and innovative support arrangements as a key driver for growth in a market dominated by a combination of increasingly complex and upgradeable products with a lack of funds available internationally for new acquisitions.

This has ‘caused a significant growth in the market for support services and training’, he said. ‘We’ve been able to position ourselves to serve this expanding market by offering increasingly flexible and innovative support arrangements, including new forms of contracting. By combining our technology base and deep product knowledge with flexibility and timeliness, we’re able to meet the new needs of customers’.

The Grifo is one of Selex Galileo’s most successful products, which has sold more than 450 units worldwide; while the Falco is the only UAS entirely developed, equipped and manufactured in Europe and is now in service with four international customers.

Other contracts cover the logistical support of sensors and avionic components for fixed and rotary-wing aircraft. The company supports key technologies on major international programmes including the Eurofighter Typhoon, Gripen NG, F35, M346 and helicopters including the AW101 and NH90.

According to the company, it has built its support and service business by developing and transferring new technology and operational solutions to its customers. This helps customers ‘maximise their asset’s availability and performance and contributes to the success of their missions’.
