ASELSAN WINS PAKISTAN SUBMARINE ESM ORDER
Aselsan (Ankara, Turkey) has been
selected to provide its ARES-2 electronic
support measures (ESM) system as part
of the upgrade of the Pakistan Navy's
Agosta 90B submarines.
Turkish technology and systems
engineering house Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret (STM)
was in June 2016 contracted to lead
the upgrade of the three French-built
Agosta 90B boats. The contract is firm
for one boat, with options for the remaining two.
According to Aselsan, its second-generation ARES-2SC 2-18 GHz ESM
system is to be supplied for the Agosta
90B upgrade. The main part of system
is being sourced through STM as prime

contractor; under a separate contract
with Airbus DS Optronics, Aselsan will
supply an omnidirectional RWR antenna for installation on the new SERO 250
periscope also being introduced as part
of the upgrade.
The
company's
first-generation
ARES-2NS submarine ESM is already in
service on board two modernized Ayclass Type 209/1200 submarines, and
has been specified for the six Type 214
boats being procured under the New
Type Submarine Project.
Aselsan is now developing a
third-generation submarine system that
will combine the functions of radar ESM
and communications ESM in a single antenna. It is expected that this solution

SAGE ENTERS SERVICE IN INDONESIA
Leonardo's Airborne & Space Systems
business has confirmed that its SAGE
digital electronic support measures
(ESM) system has entered service with
the Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU).
Under contract to US-based prime
contractor Integrated Surveillance and
Defense Inc (ISD), Leonardo was in 2015
selected to supply the SAGE 600 variant
for integration onto the single CN-235
maritime patrol aircraft operated by the
TNI-AU.
According to Leonardo, the SAGE
installation and integration was performed earlier in 2016, with the modification program led by PT Dirgantara
Indonesia and ISD (the latter responsible for integrating the Merlin mission
suite comprising radar, ESM, AIS, and
forward-looking infrared). Flight testing was conducted during the middle
portion of this year.
The SAGE system uses parallel wideband and channelized digital receivers
to achieve enhanced sensitivity, fine
frequency measurement and very high
probability of intercept in the frequen-

cy range 2-18 GHz (with options for C/D
and K band extensions). In addition, the
use of advanced algorithmic techniques
and a pair of high accuracy interferometric direction finding arrays (fitted
port and starboard in the rear fuselage
for the CN-235 embodiment) allows SAGE
to geo-locate from a single platform.
SAGE is already in service with the
Republic of Korea Navy as part of the
electronic warfare suite fitted to the
eight AW159 helicopters acquired under the Maritime Operational Helicopter
program. The SAGE system is also being
refitted to eight Brazilian Navy Lynx
Mk 21A helicopters being upgraded by
Leonardo Helicopters and due to enter
service from 2017.
In parallel, the company is aggressively pursuing opportunities for SAGE
in the UAS market. During October 2016
the system was demonstrated on the
Leonardo Helicopters SW4-Solo optionally-piloted helicopter and the Schiebel
S-100 Camcopter UAS during the Royal
Navy's 'Unmanned Warrior' demonstration off northwest Scotland. - R. Scott

will be offered for the forthcoming modernization of the Turkish Naval Forces'
four Preveze-class Type 209/1400 submarines. - R. Scott

IN BRIEF
❍ Last month the Government of New
Zealand released its 2016 Defence
Capabilities Plan detailing NZ$20
billion in needed defense investments for the country out to the
year 2030. Among recommended
investments to ensure the country's
readiness are new land electronic
countermeasures systems to help
counter RCIEDs and an assessment of
new air surveillance capabilities, to
replace the country's current six P-3
Orions, which will near end of life
in the 2020. The plan also detailed
the plans for implementation of the
country's Network Enabled Army
program, which is currently modernizing command, communication,
battle management and surveillance
for land forces, with advanced capabilities to include "blue force tracking, a common operating picture of
troop movements and secure satellite communications at the section
level." The first "tranche" of the program, which focuses on equipping a
company-size group, is scheduled for
completion by 2019, with expansion
of technology across an Army light
task group by 2022. Future, broader,
introductions would be scheduled
for 2025 and 2028.
❍ Israel announced plans to purchase hundreds of additional Trophy
active protection systems (APS),
manufactured by Rafael. The order
is intended to ensure that every new
version of the country's Merkava 4
tank and Namer armored personnel
carrier (APC) will be equipped with
the Trophy System. a
