Portfolio of defence systems available to MENA
SRC is expanding its commitment to providing border security and force protection solutions to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions. The evolving conflicts in these areas have created a need for increased border, force and critical infrastructure protection measures to ensure the safety of soldiers and civilians alike.
As explained in the US Army’s 2016 posture statement on the CENTCOM area of responsibility, “the convergence of interests, namely the need to counter the threat posed by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (IS) and other violent extremist organizations, has afforded a unique opportunity to strengthen ties among nations while contributing to improving stability and security throughout the region. We should do all that we can to support and enable their continued collaboration as we work to enhance our collective capabilities.”
SRC has already begun to play a vital role in bolstering the border security and force protection capabilities of MENA countries by supplying multiple surveillance systems to the region. SRC’s lightweight counter-mortar radar (LCMR) system is currently providing soldiers with 360 degree early warning and counterfire target acquisition capabilities. The SR Hawk ground surveillance radar is also being used for persistent surveillance of territorial borders and critical infrastructure perimeters.
