Brazil­ian Air Force takes de­liv­ery of 400th GRIFO radar


Selex ES, a Fin­mec­ca­nica com­pany, cel­e­brated the de­liv­ery of the 400th GRIFO radar, which is to be used by the Brazil­ian Air Force. The com­pany, based out of the Lom­bard Aero­space Dis­trict, marked the oc­ca­sion with a cer­e­mony at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tec­nolo­gia Leonardo da Vinci, in Mi­lan, Italy.

The GRIFO avionic com­bat radar, was the very first to be wholly de­signed, de­vel­oped and pro­duced at the Selex ES site in Ner­viano (near Mi­lan). Up un­til the end of the Eight­ies the com­pany, at that time known as FIAR, had pro­duced only radars un­der li­cence.

The GRIFO radar rep­re­sents an im­por­tant com­mer­cial suc­cess for Selex ES at in­ter­na­tional level: 450 GRIFO radar sys­tems have been so far sold, with the radar be­ing cho­sen by five dif­fer­ent air forces around the world and it is in op­er­a­tion in seven dif­fer­ent types of air­craft.
