BASILDON, England, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Britain's Selex ES has partnered with Russia's NIIDAR to promote surveillance systems produced in Russia and Italy.

The cooperative agreement between Selex ES, a subsidiary of Italy's Finmeccanica company, and NIIDAR (Scientific and Research Institute for Long-Distance Radio Communications), a Russian open joint stock company, was announced Tuesday.

The two companies have so far identified two products for international promotion: Selex ES's Lyra family and NIIDAR's Laguna over-the-horizon, integrated maritime surveillance system.

Selex ES said its Lyra radar line family is designed to meet requirements in the security domain, including integration into major systems for homeland protection, vessel traffic services and field deployment in a man-portable radar configuration.

NIIDAR's Laguna civil use radar is the second product. Its designed for law and order operations and for the surveillance of the exclusive economic zone of coastal states.

"The agreement will enhance the capabilities of both companies in their domestic markets as well as in the wider international marketplace," Selex ES said.
