Finmeccanica has secured a contract to provide radar warning receiver SEER to the Indonesian Air Force.

Awarded through Aptronics PTE, the contract requires the company to install SEER on lightweight multi-role combat aircraft Mk.209 Hawk of the Indonesian Air Force currently in service. It also includes an option to supply additional systems in the future.

The self-protection system is expected to facilitate the detection and identification of potential radar threats and alert the pilots, providing pilots a greater level of security.

Recently, the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) contracted the company to supply the SG200-D variant of the SEER family, to be installed for the fleet of helicopters Puma and Chinook in the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Additionally, the Czech Air Force operates two advanced lightweight multi-role fighter L-159 equipped with the SEER radar warning receiver.

The SEER family of fully digital radar warning receivers, which has been developed as a low-risk upgrade to existing systems, is available in two variants, SEER Compact and SEER Distributed.

The company claims that SEER demonstrates high-sensitivity and is capable of detecting radars at ranges that are significantly greater than those achieved by older-generation systems, with significant positional accuracy.
