Plath’s highly sensitive sensors will provide a situational contribution to the C2 and weapons control systems, complementing Indra’s systems in the interception and processing of hostile radar signals, and the identification of their characteristics and position. Plath’s software allows for relevant data to be parsed from the increasing volume of data derived from the EM spectrum in real time. In addition, the evolution in antenna development by the two partners leads to significant advances in situational awareness and platform protection by CESM, as well as a significant increase in overall system performance.
The stable partnership with Indra and with kta naval systems (a thyssenkrupp Marine Systems and Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace joint venture) offers the company a valuable strategic perspective in the long term. Indra is a leading global defence company that provides solutions for the most advanced platforms, including Eurofighter and FCAS programme, and pushes the technology frontier in several key projects, funded by the European Union, that will deliver new military capabilities in multiple domains.
