INTRACOM DEFENSE in cooperation with the US Company RAYTHEON participates successfully in the manufacturing and support of the PATRIOT PAC3 Air Defense System.
The cooperation started with the implementation of the Hellenic Patriot Program where INTRACOM DEFENSE undertook the manufacturing of the electronic systems as well as the integration of the main systems (ECS, ICC, CRG, AMG, and DLTM). Through its participation in the Greek PATRIOT program INTRACOM DEFENSE has been established as the only non-US based manufacturer of these electronic systems, obtaining thus the ability to further participate in procurement programs of other interested countries.
In the frame of international contracts from RAYTHEON the company undertakes, manufacturing and testing of systems for the Launcher Station of the PATRIOT Missile System. For the needs of these multi-contracts, the company has developed and qualified a new unique and innovative production line and test stations for the manufacturing of the Launcher Platform Actuators (Linear & Rotary). These subsystems are delivered today as spare parts too, directly to the US Government.
Moreover, exceptionally important is the new 5-year contract with NSPA (NATO Support Agency – former NAMSA) for the maintenance, repair, and support of the PATRIOT systems that are deployed in Europe. This new contract succeeds the successful completion of previous 10-year contract.
The company extended its cooperation with RAYTHEON by signing a new contract concerning the manufacturing of the Antenna Mast Group (AMG) for third party’s needs.
All these years, INTRACOM DEFENSE is honored by Raytheon for its exceptional performance and quality with Supplier Excellence Award.
