UAE Buys Grintek Laser Warning System for Corvettes
AllAfrica.com: Grintek Wraps Up Emirates Defence Contract
The United Arab Emirates tapped Grintek to install naval warning systems on four of its corvettes. The R7 million contract will allow the ships to know when they are targeted by laser-guided weapons so that they can trigger defense or evasion mechanisms. Grintek’s Avitronics subsidiary, which developed the system, sold just under half the company to Swedish defense manufacturer Saab. Grintek sells similar warning systems for aircraft and ground vehicles.
