Paris Air Show 2015: Selex ES to Provide Electronic Warfare System to Indonesian Air Force CN-235

Finmeccanica – Selex ES has signed a contract with US-based prime contractor Integrated Surveillance and Defense (ISD) to provide a SAGE 600 digital Electronic Support Measure (ESM) system for the Indonesian Air Force. The system will be delivered this September for integration onto a maritime patrol mission system for an Indonesian Air Force Airbus CN-235 aircraft.

SAGE is an electronic warfare system for RF intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. It passively collects emitter data from RF sources at a tactically significant range, compares them with an emitter library and then identifies and geolocates any threats.

This is the first selection of SAGE for a fixed-wing maritime patrol requirement. The system has been designed with flexibility in mind, allowing ease of integration onto a wide range of aerial vehicles - from fixed to rotary wing, up to unmanned aerial systems (UAS) - and has previously flown on a number of other platform types including the Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA). SAGE is in use with the UK MoD and has been provided to the Republic of Korea as part of a package of electronic warfare equipment for the country’s Maritime Operational Helicopter (MOH) programme.
