the JAS 39 Gripen fast jet. Here, export
sales of both the existing Gripen models and the emerging JAS 39E Gripen NG
look set to maintain a steady line of
business for Saab’s EW manufacturing
sector for at least the rest of this decade if not longer.

A GLIMMER OF GROWTH IN TURKEY
Interestingly, Turkey appears to be
bucking the international economic
downturn, and its national EW champion, Aselsan, looks set to receive a

steady stream of EW-related work from
the country’s military. In more detail,
Aselsan’s product portfolio includes a
naval RESM system; ground-based communications-band
direction-finders
and jammers; a software-defined RCIED
jammer; a variety of torpedo decoying equipment, a ground-transportable
RESM/ELINT system and a helicopter
DAS. In terms of potential activity,
Aselsan should be well positioned to
export into the Muslim world, with
the proviso that Turkey’s current rap-

EMBRACING EUROPEAN COOPERATION
The remaining country listed – the
UK – is home to the UK arm of the Anglo-Italian conglomerate Selex ES, whose
EW center-of-excellence resides in the
British Isles. Most recently re-jigged as
part of parent company Finmeccanica’s
general re-structuring, Selex ES’s EW
portfolio includes lead on the Typhoon
fast jet’s Praetorian DAS, airborne radar
warning and RESM systems, the Helicopter Integrated DAS (HIDAS) family,
the Aircraft Gateway Processor (AGP)
and a family of DIRCMs that includes the
recently revealed Miysis system. Looking at some of these in more detail, the
AGP is a single-box survivability-system
controller that is a standard fit on AH64D Block III (AH-64E) helicopters and
which can accommodate both legacy
and new fit EW systems. In terms of its
DIRCM work, Selex ES and its predecessors have been incumbent on the AN/
AAQ-24(V) Nemesis system (along with
partner Northrop Grumman) since its
inception during the 1990s. Most recently, the contractor has fielded both
its Eclipse pointer-tracker and its Type
160 countermeasures laser, with both
equipments being employed in the UK’s
Common Defensive Aids Suite (CDAS)
Technology Demonstration Programme
(TDP) and the Miyis system. Of the two
(and if transitioned from a TDP to an
operational application), CDAS (which
also utilizes the already noted AGP processor), is intended to be applicable to
the UK’s Apache AH Mk 1 (to include
a DIRCM and a Hostile Fire Indicator –
HFI), Chinook HC Mk 2/3/3A (DAS to include BAE Systems’ AN/AAR-57 missile
warner, a DIRCM and HFI), Puma (recapitalization of 28 aircraft and DAS to
include legacy and new equipment, such
as the AN/AAR-57), Merlin (both Royal
Air Force and Royal Navy examples) and
Wildcat (a HIDAS application without laser warning) helicopters.
Elsewhere in the world, Eclipse
also forms part of Northrop Grumman’s submission for the US Common
IR Countermeasures (CIRCM) program,
where it is teamed with Northrop’s Solaris™ quantum cascade laser source.
