signed a teaming agreement with n technology firm PT CMI Teknologi to improve airspace surveillance, safety, and management over the n Archipelago in support of the government s defense revitalization initiative.
During a signing ceremony at the Singapore Air Show, company representatives agreed to jointly pursue the National AirspaceRepublic of Indonesia (NASRI) program with the intent to produce more than 40 new TPS-77 and FPS-117 long-range surveillance radars in-country.
“CMI s strong background in microwave electronics makes them an ideal partner for the manufacture and long-term support of these radar systems in Indonesia,” said James Gribbon, Asia Pacific regional president for. “By integrating new sensors with Indonesia s command and control system, the NASRI network will greatly enhance air sovereignty and surveillance over the country s more than 17,000 islands, spanning a distance wider than the United States.”
Data feeds from the network will also enhance civilian air traffic control, including commercial air traffic management, which is currently handled by radars in nearby Singapore.
