MBDA, Leonardo and SAKT present SIHAM3 at IDEX 2017

Posted 20 February 2017 · Add Comment

At IDEX 2017, MBDA, Leonardo and UAE company Siham Al Khaleej Technology (SAKT), are presenting an innovative weapon system designated SIHAM3, providing a comprehensive and stand-alone anti-air and anti-surface capability to all types of warships.



This industrial cooperation will be officially announced during IDEX 2017 and a mock-up of the system will be displayed at the SAKT booth, B-0004, at NAVDEX.

In particular, SAKT will be responsible for integration of the SIHAM3 weapon system, which combines two Leonardo products: the OTO Marlin WS 30mm Naval Gun and the Medusa MK4/B Electro-Optical Fire Control System (EO-FCS) providing a stand-alone capability to detect and track with high accuracy either air or surface targets. The system is completed with an  MBDA Twin Air Defence Mistral missile launcher on a single mounting.

This new system will be fully controlled by a single operator and will allow for a significant reduction in the ship’s installation requirement thanks to a single mounted system.

A further evolution of the SIHAM3will allow integration with a Combat Management System (CMS). This 'Made in the UAE' system will be developed, produced, assembled and integrated by the three parties together.
