On Thursday 11th June, the Greek company SCYTALYS announced the contract award from the Indonesian Ministry of Defence worth $ 49 million, following an open international tender, for the provision of integrated Systems of Interoperability, Command & Control to the Indonesian Armed Forces.

The project, which SCYTALYS undertakes to implement and deliver within a 3-year time frame, includes the following sections:

  • Design and development of the National Tactical Data System
  • Design and development of an Operational Center consisting of a state-of-the-art C4ISR system, including the construction of new infrastructure where it will operate. This system will achieve the composition of Common Operational Picture with the immediate impact of strengthening Situational Awareness
  • Interconnection of multiple Command Centers by all branches of the Armed Forces with the central C4ISR system
  • Design and development of a Surveillance and Reconnaissance system, interconnected with the central C4ISR system, in order to enhance the Awareness of Operational Status and Interoperability

The program will establish the National Interoperability Center of the Indonesian Armed Forces, paving the way for the achievement of their Network Centric Operations, a critical factor for modern military operations. This will strengthen the Indonesian Armed Forces, significantly enhancing their capabilities and effectiveness and improving Indonesia’s geopolitical power in Southeast Asia and the wider region.


“We attach great value to the assignment of this project, which we consider to be of a strategic nature, as it will allow the Indonesian Armed Forces to acquire the necessary technologies and infrastructure (National Tactical Data System, C4ISR system, etc.) for the implementation of the framework for their interoperability and the successful conduct of a Central Operational Network in the future. SCYTALYS is committed to delivering the complete solution, fully meeting the requirements of the Indonesian Ministry of Defence,” said the CEO of SCYTALYS, Mr. Dimitris Karantzavelos.

“This is a top operational success that leverages the know-how, international experience and innovative technologies that SCYTALYS has specialized in for 27 years. This achievement demonstrates the potential of the Greek defence industry to undertake projects of this scope with particularly high technological requirements. Through the EFA GROUP and its recent industry partnerships, SCYTALYS aims to further expand its portfolio as an international supplier of technologies and integrated solutions for Network and Operational Services, Interoperability, Tactical Data Systems as well as Command and Control Systems in the fields of defence and security, added Mr. Nikos Papatsas, CEO of EFA VENTURES.
