Hellenic navy chooses US systems

EDO Corporation has been awarded a contract worth in excess of $10 million to supply six CS-3701 Electronic Support Measures systems for use on the Hellenic navy’s S-class frigates.

EDO Corporation has been awarded a contract to supply six CS-3701 Electronic Support Measures systems for use on S-class frigates under the Hellenic navy’s mid-life modernisation program.

Deliveries under the contract, which is in excess of $10 million, are expected to begin by November 2004 and be completed in 2008.

According to EDO Corporation, the CS-3701 ESM is a precision direction-finding system currently in use by several international navies for both surface and subsurface vessels.

It provides improved situation awareness, targeting, self-protection and surveillance by continuously monitoring potential radar threats, even in difficult electromagnetic environments, allowing the ship’s crew to quickly take defensive action.

The CS-3701 ESM equipment will be manufactured at EDO’s Reconnaissance and Surveillance Systems unit, located in Morgan Hill, California.
