UAE-made naval turret unveiled at IDEX 2017

UAE company Siham Al Khaleej Technology (SAKT) joined Europe’s Leonardo and MBDA for the unveiling of the newly-developed SIHAM3 combined anti-air and anti-surface weapon system at IDEX 2017.

Jointly developed by the three companies, the system provides a stand-alone anti-air and anti-surface capability to all types of warships.

In the industrial cooperation between the three sides, 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).

The system is enhanced with an MBDA Twin Air Defence Mistral missile launcher on the single mounting.

According to Leonardo, a further evolution of the SIHAM3 will allow integration with a combat management system (CMS). The company further said that this “Made in the UAE” system would be developed, produced, assembled and integrated by the three parties together.
