IDE will develop electronic units for the ESSM Missle
Greece’s largest manufacturer of defense electronics products, systems and applications Intracom Defense Electronics (IDE) has won the contract for design and development of electronic units for the Block 2 improved version of the surface-to-air ESSM missile (Evolved SeaSparrow Missile). The country has taken part in an international bidding process with companies from ten countries participating in the ESSM consortium.
The amount of the agreement within the projects is USD 5,6 million. There are reasonable prospects for participation of IDE in the production and support phases of the missile.
"The high quality standards and capabilities of IDE have established the company as a reliable partner in the successful international course of the ESSM missile program," reveal company representatives.
IDE traditionally participates in international development and production programs, including international cooperations for production and export of defense equipment. It is also a registered member of NATO’s vendors list.
