Raytheon Co., under a contract modification from the U.S. Army, is adding new capabilities to the Identification Friend or Foe interrogator to reduce Radio Frequency (RF) emissions and enhance target identification for the warfighter.
Cassidian, the defence and security division of EADS, will supply the French Armed Forces with advanced identification systems used to prevent friendly fire. The French defence procurement agency, Direction Générale de l'Armement (DGA), has awarded Cassidian a contract to supply 150 units of its newly developed Monopulse Secondary Radar (MSR) 1000 I interrogator for the short-range friend-or-foe identification (IFF).
Cassidian has introduced its new Airport Surveillance Radar, Next Generation (ASR-NG) radar, which is claimed to offer completely new options for air traffic control and for safe guidance of aircraft during take-off and landing.
In order to expand and develop its operations in Africa NEC Corporation will establish branch offices in Nairobi, Kenya and in Lagos, Nigeria. The company has also appointed Masahiro Yoshikawa as President of NEC Africa (Pty) Ltd, which is a 100 percent subsidiary of NEC Europe Ltd, the regional headquarters in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
