Ambitious Three-Year Develop and Deliver Undertaking
SCYTALYS SA, an EFA Group company headquartered in Argyroupoli, Greece, announced on 16 July it has ben awarded a contract valued at $49 million (€42.9 million) to develop and supply an Interoperability, Command and Control system to the Indonesian MoD.
The system, to be developed and delivered within three years, includes the following elements:
- Design and development of the Indonesian National Data Link system;
- Design and development of a centralized state-of-the-art C4ISR system and related new facilities, synthesizing the Common Operational Picture and increasing situational awareness;
- Integration of Command Centres from all services (Army, Navy and Air Force) to the C4ISR system;
- Design and development of an integrated remote surveillance and monitoring system, further enhancing situational awareness and interoperability.
The programme will establish the National Interoperability Framework for the Indonesian Armed Forces and will pave the way in realizing their network -centric operations requirements and objectives – a critical component of modern warfare – which will in turn prove to be a force multiplier for the armed forces, reinforcing their capabilities and effectiveness.
Dimitris Karantzavelos, CEO of SCYTALYS, stated the company views the contract as being of “strategic importance, as it will enable the Indonesian Armed Forces to acquire the necessary National Data Link, C4ISR systems, technologies and facilities in order to build their interoperability framework and conduct their inter- and intra-service network-centric operations into the future.”
“This success has been preceded by other contract awards for SCYTALYS in the Far East, not only in Indonesia, but also in [South] Korea and Japan. The company is poised to take advantage of the global trend in multiplying the value added of different defense assets by linking them together” added Nick Papatsas, Member of the Board of SCYTALYS, representing EFA Group, the main owner of SCYTALYS. “We believe that SCYTALYS will repeat the success of THEON SENSORS, our other global leader company in night vision and thermal imaging systems.”
SCYTALYS SA (formerly. Interoperability Systems International Hellas) specializes in the design, development, integration, installation, testing and follow-on support of tactical data links and interoperability solutions, mission and command and control systems and ISR solutions.
