Senators from the Parliament of the Czech Republic visited ERA Company
Members of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, Defence and Security of the Czech Senate visited ERA headquarters in mid-February. The main goal of the visit was the introduction of alternative radiolocation methods by ERA experts, a presentation of the ERA solutions portfolio and a tour of the ERA premises.
Over a two-hour programme, the senators were introduced to the history of passive systems of Czech origin demonstrating the long term usage of the PET system known as the 5th generation VERA-NG. ERA Managing Director Viktor Sotona held a commented “sightseeing” tour around the company facilities and the guests observed the packing process of the products for several customers in the dispatch hall.
The politicians were pleased to hear about ERA’s achievements such as the NATO contract of two military reconnaissance systems and the several dozen current projects to provide Air National Service Providers with ERA civil surveillance systems. This clearly demonstrate the fact that ERA over the last two decades has sold its systems all over the world and has become a leading supplier of multilateration technology and pioneer of its usage for the armed forces and ATM industry.
“The visit to your company has convinced us that the Czech industry actually has something to offer to the world of technology and in some fields can actually even star as a leader,” stated senator Jozef Táborský, member of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, Defence and Security.
