January 23, 2020
INDONESIA. Leonardo has signed a contract with Indonesian company PT Len Industri (Persero) to provide a RAT 31 DL/M radar system for the Indonesian Air Force (IAF). The IAF will operate the radar to strengthen the air defense system of the Republic of Indonesia.
Persero will supply local components, infrastructure support, and expert radar maintenance. For this contract and future programs, Leonardo and Persero plan a joint production of radars in Indonesia.
The contract signing came just after an announcement made at the November 2019 Defense & Security exhibition in Bangkok, where Leonardo revealed it will also provide a RAT 31 DL to the Thailand Air Force.
The RAT 31 DL/M, NATO's primary air-defense sensor, is an early-warning surveillance system designed to mitigate air and missile threats. It is part of Leonardo’s RAT 31 radar systems family, and it shares its architecture with the RAT 31 DL Long Range Ground Control Interceptor.
