MEDAV receives order for border security sensors

Defence and security company Saab's subsidiary MEDAV GmbH has received an order for the electromagnetic signal-sensor part of the Brazilian border security program Sisfron. Deliveries will take place during 2013 to 2016.

Sisfron is the integrated border monitoring system the Brazilian army is developing for its western border, contributing to regional security and fighting cross-border crimes.

Stationary as well as mobile remote controlled sensor-stations with monitoring and direction-finding capabilities in the frequency ranges HF, VHF and UHF will be delivered and a regional centre for monitoring (ISTAR) and a training centre are included in the contract. Together with this project, technology transfer is provided, increasing the autonomy in the supply chain and creating jobs in high technology sectors in Brazil.

For this order, MEDAV is subcontractor to Savis Tecnologia e SistemasS.A., a subsidiary of Embraer Defesa & Seguranca S.A., wholly-owned by EmbraerS.A. selected by the Brazilian Army to implement the Sisfron Phase 1 Program.

MEDAV specialises in the application of digital signal processing, pattern recognition and information technology. Special advantages of the MEDAV system are the software based architecture using SDIA® (Software Defined Intelligence Architecture) and MEDAV's capability to provide all parts of the system from the sensor to information fusion and reporting. The company was founded in 1982 and serves more than 50 customers globally with highly innovative and technologically leading solutions. MEDAV is part of the Saab group since 2012.
