Supporting defence system manufacture

Link Microtek has been appointed as UK representative for French defence-systems manufacturer, Amesys. Based in Aix-en-Provence, Amesys offers a comprehensive range of non-ITAR equipment for signal intelligence applications in the defence and security fields.

Commenting on the appointment, Link Microteks managing director, Steve Cranstone, said: Link Microtek is already well established as a supplier of components and subsystems to the defence sector, and this new agreement will enable us to move up a level to offer a range of complete systems to UK military and government customers.

The Amesys product portfolio includes instruments for the interception, demodulation, decoding, recording and analysis of signals, as well as a variety of jamming systems, radar simulation systems, ruggedised computers and missile launch systems.

Olivier Bohbot, managing director of Amesyss sales arm, Elexo, believes that Links expertise will be invaluable: Link Microtek has many years of experience in microwave and RF defence electronics, and we are confident that this agreement marks the beginning of a very successful partnership.
