Leonardo has signed a contract with Indonesian company PT Len Industri (Persero) to provide a RAT 31 DL/M radar system for the Indonesian Air Force (IAF).
The IAF will operate the radar to strengthen the air defence system of the Republic of Indonesia. PT Len Industri will supply local components, infrastructure support, and expert radar maintenance. For this contract and future programmes in Country Leonardo and PT Len Industri plan a joint production of radars in Indonesia.
The contract signing came just after an announcement made in November 2019 at Defense & Security exhibition in Bangkok, where Leonardo revealed it will also provide a RAT 31 DL to the Thailand Air Force.
The RAT 31 DL/M has already been acquired by the Italian, German, Austrian air forces in addition to a North African Air Force.
The RAT 31 DL/M is part of Leonardo’s RAT 31 radar systems family, and it shares its architecture with the RAT 31 DL Long Range GCI (Ground Control Interceptor) an advanced, L-band, solid state solution for 3D surveillance, with an effective range of over 470 km. It protects against air and missile threats, including ballistic missiles, for homeland security and expeditionary missions.
The radar system can adapt to the challenges posed by a broad range of operational scenarios, including where the radar has to face jamming and heavy clutter at the same time. Its highly reliable solid-state technology allows for a ‘graceful degradation’, where even if some radar modules fail, the overall performance of the radar is maintained.
More than 50 RAT 31 DL systems have been sold worldwide. It is NATO’s primary air defence sensor
Leonardo's new Osprey 50 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar equipped on a B200 King Air has completed its first flight test in the UK. The new radar is a larger-aperture variant of Leonardo's Osprey surveillance radar
Leonardo UK has demonstrated a new radar receiver, warner technology as part of its development work for the Tempest project, the future combat jet project in which the UK, Italy and Sweden are working together. In a laboratory demonstration for the UK MoD and other Team Tempest partners, the new sensor demonstrated a direction finding performance of four times what is possible with typical radar warning receiver while being just 1/10th the size of a standard system
Leonardo won a contract to supply the Royal Thai Air Force with RAT 31DL air defence radar system during the Defense & Security Exhibition (18- 21 November) in Bangkok, Thailand. The long-range radar will be installed at a site in Samui in order to protect the countrys southern region
