ABU DHABI, 24th February, 2015 (WAM) -- UAE-based Siham Al Khaleej Technology, SAKT, in partnership with European missile house, MBDA, and Italian navigation electronics group, GEM Elettronica, announced the development of a new coastal battery system based on the Marte missile family during its participation in IDEX 2015.

Being displayed on the SAKT exhibit and in mock-up form at NAVDEX, the baseline system configuration has been designed to satisfy requirements for surveillance, control, and protection of coastal assets. SAKT is taking the role of prime contractor and system integrator, MBDA is responsible for the supply of missiles and launch systems for the Marte anti-ship family missile, and GEM will provide remote radar stations.

Developed under the framework of a heads of agreement signed in late 2013, the proposed coastal defence system would provide a capability for both maritime surveillance and threat interdiction. In its baseline configuration, the system comprises a surface coastal radar system, a command and control shelter, and a number of Marte missile launchers. Rapidly deployable to coastal sites and small islands, the system can be connected via datalink to an upper echelon of command and control, if required. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
