Italian defence group Leonardo released a statement that it had signed a contract with Indonesian company PT Len Industri (Persero) to provide an RAT 31DL/M long-range, 3D air-defence radar system for the Indonesian Air Force (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Udara: TNI-AU).
The TNI-AU will operate the L-band, solid-state, phased array radar system to strengthen Indonesia’s air defences, said the company on 21 January.
Leonardo said PT Len Industri will supply local components, infrastructure support, and expert radar maintenance, adding that “for this contract and future programmes in [the] country Leonardo and PT Len Industri plan a joint production of radars in Indonesia”.
The Italian Leonardo Company has supplied RAT31 DL radar system to the Royal Thai Air Force and Bangladesh Air Force.
According to Leonardo, the RAT 31 DL/M, which has an effective range of more than 470 km, has already been acquired by the Austrian, German, and Italian air forces.
