Finmeccanica company Selex Sistemi Integrati will showcase its most important products in the radar systems domain and in the design and development of large systems for homeland protection.

In the static exhibition area of Finmeccanica, Selex Sistemi Integrati will put on show Aulos, a new passive radar system developed by the company, which takes its name from an ancient Greece wind instrument. The system exploits the electromagnetic energy available in the environment, as radio frequency FM emissions, making it wholly compatible with the environment. Guaranteed “environmentallyfriendly” surveillance is in fact one of the advantages of passive radar technology. It doesn’t generate additional electromagnetic pollution, and it may be operated in and around inhabited areas and, more specifically, urban environments.

In the area dedicated to security, the company will put on show solutions for an integrated airport. The solution is designed to deliver a fully operational airport system, based on the development of integrated airside and land side systems.

In air traffic control and management, Selex Sistemi Integrati is a turnkey supplier, relying on its capabilities in designing, manufacturing and installing different operational set ups according to the customer needs.

In naval systems, there will be the Kronos radar system, one of its state-of-the-art products. It is a tri-dimensional multi-role C band radar, born from the successful experience of the EMPAR system and totally produced with the company’s proprietary technology. More than 20 Kronos, in their different versions, which include naval and land configurations, have been sold in several countries worldwide until now.

In the area dedicated to land systems, the company is showcasing the new SIACCON and the advanced command and control system C2 Advanced, both of which have been designed and realised within the Forza NEC programme aimed at the battlefield digitalisation. The company will display the Masterzone system, designed for surveillance and monitoring through unattended sensor net. Selex Sistemi Integrati also designs and realises netcentric architectures able to work in an inter-force, interoperable environment with the purpose of gaining superiority of information.
