MADRID, June 10 (UPI) -- Indra, the Spanish technology company, says it is supplying the South Korean Navy with its Pegaso electronic defense system.

The system will be installed on two new submarines of the Korean Navy and will enable them to detect radar signals in a mission environment, identify them and their associated threat level.

"Pegaso technology will give the new boats of the ROKN an important operational advantage in threats identification," Indra said. "Same technology has already been selected by the Navies of Spain, Germany, Italy or Indonesia for their submarines."

Indra said Pegaso is the latest Radar Electronic Support Measurement system based on wideband digital reception technology. Its signal processing ensures high sensitivity and detection range even in dense electromagnetic scenarios.

The Pegaso deal, for which no monetary figure was provided, "reinforces" its commercial position in the Asia-Pacific region where it has facilities in China, India, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia.
