Selex Sistemi Integrati of Italy has introduced its first small radar, weighing only 55 pounds and aimed at “homeland protection” applications. Lyra 10, a prototype of which Selex is displaying at the show (Hall 4 Stand A5), can detect “people, vehicles, boats and low-altitude helicopters up to a range of 24 km (15 miles),” said the Finmeccanica company. The sensor is manufactured at the company’s Fusaro (Naples) facility, where tests are underway ahead of serial production. The company hopes to gain 30 percent of the market and hopes to ship 800 units each year over the next ten years.
