RIO DE JANEIRO --- Selex Galileo, a Finmeccanica Company, will be participating in the LAAD Security 2012 exhibition which will take place from the 10th to the 12th of April in Rio de Janiero (Riocentro Exhibition Centre).
Selex Galileo is a leading provider of security and homeland protection sensors, based on leading edge proprietary technologies that can be effectively integrated and networked in a complete situational awareness system.
Selex Galileo has a long tradition of working in Brazil in the military domain, contributing radar and advanced avionics to programmes such as the AMX, the F5 and the Lynx. Most recently the Company’s flagship AESA and M-Scan radars have been selected for a range of fixed wing and UAS platforms. These successes build on Selex Galileo’s long-term commitment to working in Brazil where the company has in place successful collaborations with two high-calibre local companies.
Selex Galileo is now broadening the applications of its state-of-the-art airborne radars, EO solutions and unmanned systems by making its technology available to leading industrial partners in Brazil, allowing them to leverage on its international experience and heritage to better meet the emerging surveillance requirements of police forces, border security and environmental organisations.
To answer future persistent unmanned surveillance requirements, while contributing to the growth of a sovereign independent in-country unmanned surveillance capability, Selex Galileo is also introducing its platform agnostic integrated sensor mission system SkyISTAR.
Furthermore, land based surveillance initiatives for paramilitary and commercial requirements can easily integrate Selex Galileo’s leading edge sensors (EO, acoustic, RF, Nuclear Biological and Chemical (NBC)) with effective applications in critical asset and civil events security, power infrastructure, oil and gas assets and environment monitoring and protection.
“We are delighted with this new opportunity to exhibit our leading edge security and surveillance technologies”, said Paul Boxwell, VP Regional Marketing Americas at Selex Galileo, adding “Our experience in Brazil has shown that there are many Defence and security companies and Government departments that wish to further develop their high technology capabilities. Selex Galileo believes that our solutions, developed jointly with these companies to meet Brazilian national requirements, will also assist in both partners targeting wider opportunities in the Latin American region”.
