The Archimede system is unique in many respects including its architecture, the threats it can manage, and the means of identifying and handling threats.
During tests in Taranto, La Spezia and Kiel the system was confronted with multiple threats including under sea, sea borne and air threats. It was able to provide a high level of protection, identify the threats, and provide different responses ranging from warnings, non-lethal force and lethal force as required depending on the severity of the attack.
Archimede is also rapidly deployable. In fact, the system can be used by global navies deployed to unfamiliar locations. Set up time is as little as a single day.
Archimede was developed by Selex Sistemi Integrati (Selex Systems Integration), which is a Finmeccanica company and the lead-company in the Finmeccanica group for homeland security.
Luca Izzoti is the head of the Defense Large System Department of Selex Sistemi Integrati.
Archimede can protect commercial and military ports and harbors, specialized installations such as oil and natural gas terminals and refineries, power plants including nulcear power plants, and ground installations requiring effective perimeter defense.
