US homeland security and network-centric warfare sectors are the targets of marketing efforts by the newly formed Selex Sensors and Airborne Systems (S&AS) of the UK.
Nick Frank, managing director S&AS, which is owned by Finmeccanica and BAE Systems, says the company’s activities will place more emphasis on sensors and integration.
He adds that the Finmeccanica connection – it owns 75% of S&AS, will bring a long term view of penetrating the US market.


Headquartered in Luton, UK, Selex was formed through the amalgamation of BAE Systems Avionics and Galileo Avionica just over a month ago.
Selex continues to work on its existing products, including the Eurofighter Typhoon’s Captor fire-control radar, the helicopter integrated defensive aids system selected by Greece, Kuwait and the UK and promoted as an upgrade to Saudi Arabia’s Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopters and lasers for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter’s electro-optical targeting system.
