INTRACOM Defense Electronics (IDE) has announced its cooperation with the German company Diehl Defense by signing a 5-year framework agreement worth ten million euros for the series production of key electronic missile components for the ground-based air defense system IRIS-T
to expand SLM (Surface-Launched Medium Range). These rocket components were developed by the IDE and passed extensive tests during the system's certification phase with great success. "This new achievement not only confirms IDE's competitiveness, but also our company's high technological standard of cutting-edge technologies, which is recognized in practice by our international customers," said George Troullinos, CEO of IDE. Diehl is currently equipping the Swedish armed forces with the IRIS-T SLS short-range air defense system. The SHORAD solution uses the Swedish-based IRIS-T air-to-air missile for vertical launch from the Hägglunds Bv410 launch platform.
