MADRID -- Leonardo has announced that, through its German subsidiary Selex ES, it has been awarded a major contract by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology to deliver its latest generation of meteorological radars to the country. In the long-running tender, the Bureau of Meteorology called for quotations for C- and S-Band radar systems and, a detailed scrutiny of the technical offers, selected Leonardo as the sole supplier of new meteorological radars for the coming years. The deed of supply has an initial term of four years and includes the option to be extended up to a total of 10 years.

In submitting its successful bid the company was assisted by Leonardo’s subsidiary in Australia who will be providing through life support and installation services in- country.

The Bureau of Meteorology currently operates 62 meteorological radars in its country-wide network. During the timeline of the contract, the bureau intends to gradually replace these systems with the C- and S-Band radar systems manufactured by Leonardo in Neuss, Germany.

Leonardo says that it is proud to have been awarded this contract in competition against a pool of international manufacturers, attesting to its outstanding capabilities in weather radar technology and serving to elevate its brand globally as the leader in the weather radar market. The company provides a range of systems in C, S and X Band. It says that over the past 20 years, more than 400 of the company’s Gematronik METEOR product line have been put into operation for meteorological service providers in over 80 countries, including on every continent.

The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government.
