TEL AVIV - Israel is upgrading its Iron Dome air defense system and recently completed a successful series of tests. Rafael is the prime contractor for the Iron Dome program. Israel is improving the Iron Dome's capability against a wider variety of threats.

During Operation Protective Edge, more than 4,700 rockets and missiles were fired at targets in Israel. This is more than three times the number fired in 2012 during Operation Pillar of Defense. Israel is working to enable the Iron Dome to cope with threat from Hezbollah and its massive arsenal of rockets and missiles.

MOSCOW - According to Brazil's Ambassador to Russia, Jose Vallim Guerreiro, a contract for the purchase of Russian-made Pantsir S-1 (SA-22 Greyhound) air defense systems is expected to be signed in 2016.

Russia and Brazil have been discussing the potential sale since 2008 but the acquisition procedure did not officially begin until February 2013. A contract was expected to be signed last November, but military spending cuts forced Brazil to postpone the deal.

Vallim Guerreiro now expects a deal to be signed in the first half of 2016. According to the ambassador, a "general decision" regarding the purchase has been made.

Brazil is looking to procure three Pantsir S-1 short-to-medium-range anti-aircraft systems for approximately $1 billion.

EGYPT LOOKING AT NH90 MULTI-MISSION HELICOPTER FOR NEW FREMM FRIGATE
Wednesday, July 1, 2015

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Egypt is reportedly seeking to acquire a single NH90 multi-mission helicopter for its new FREMM frigate.

Navy Recognition, quoting several Middle Eastern news outlets, reports that Egypt is about to procure an NH90 for the multi-mission frigate Tahya Misr (originally the French Navy vessel Normandie). The report also noted that follow-on orders are expected since Egypt has four Gowind corvettes on order from DCNS.

Cairo ordered a 6,000-ton frigate multi-mission (FREMM) from France in February this year as part of a EUR5 billion ($5.7 billion) deal package that also includes 24 Dassault Rafale combat jets and an order for MBDA air defense missiles. Egypt took delivery of the new warship on June 23.

The multirole FREMM frigates have been designed for several roles, including anti-air, anti-ship and anti-submarine warfare. They feature Herakles multifunction radar, Aster surface-to-air missiles, MdCN cruise missiles, Exocet MM40 anti-ship missiles, MU90 torpedoes and an Otobreda 76 mm gun.
