Netline has recently won a series of contracts in the Asia-Pacific region that strengthen its position in the region, the Tel Aviv-based company announced on 11 November.
Valued at $8 million (€7.3 million), the new contracts include follow-on orders for Netline’s counter-IED (C-IED) system, dubbed C-GUARD Reactive Jamming (RJ), in both portable and vehicle-mounted configurations, for an Asian police force, plus a new contract for the protection of a Head of State convoy. This unique solution both detects the threat and provides an immediate response, preventing remote detonation of radio-controlled IEDs by transmitting jamming signals around the entire convoy. The system will be delivered by the end of the year.
IEDs are normally activated by radio-controlled devices (cell phones, walkie-talkie, etc.), and have become a common threat in asymmetric warfare, as they are easy to make. Delivering benefits that include superior reactive jamming capabilities, wide coverage, simple operation by ground forces within a specific radius, and compliance with a wide range of Mil-STDs and radiation safety regulations, Netline's C-GUARD family of reactive jamming systems provides a real-time C-IED solution.
"We are pleased to further establish our presence in Asia, both with new contracts and business, and by securing follow-on orders from existing customers,” stated Yallon Bahat, CEO of Netline. “Both our new and repeat orders are an indication of our customers’ satisfaction with Netline’s technology and products. We appreciate the cooperation with the different security agencies in these countries and believe this cooperation will be extended to additional future projects, enabling our customer to align their EW security strategy with the rapidly evolving threats, by using Netline’s high-end, advanced EW technology.”
