The Director of Prince Sultan Institute for Advanced Defense Technologies said that the new directives in the Kingdom require transferring technologies that Western countries prohibit to the Kingdom and investing in that direction, including those of jet engines and the expansion of laser technologies and weapons based on them.

Part of the Interview:

In future aspirations What do we find in the center's portfolio of future projects that you are working on?

The new approach requires investing in the production and manufacture of jet engines for aircrafts, as well as delving into the production and manufacture of laser technologies, which are among the technologies banned to transfer to developing countries, and these technologies play an essential role in the future defense industries.

Underwater WiFi: Saudi Arabian Scientists Develop Wireless Transmission Method for Aqueous Use
A broadband internet connection has turned into an utmost necessity in the modern world, and many scientists have taken part in research trying to connect underserved areas.

Saudi Arabian scientists have found a new way to provide users with the ability to connect to the internet in an underwater environment, a paper published in IEEE Communications shows.

According to the paper, the researchers intend to bring the internet to underwater environments by "deploying a low power and compact underwater optical wireless system, called Aqua-Fi, to support today's internet applications".

Nice, although they will take a significant amount of time to be finished.
Not the Combattante and the high speed interceptors..but as you know making 3 Gowind from scratch and for the first time needs its time for training and getting a good experience..It is a sophisticated stealth ship..

The same Gowind 2500..
And if you think about it, bro, those 3 that were built in Alexandria shipyard didn't take that long TBH. Each one seemed to get built in less time which is expected as systems are gotten used to and speed increases. So the first one in Saudiya might take some time, but after that they'll be slapping them together like it's no one's business! :-)

Yes that is true.. but for KSA it is still new as far as military corvettes are concerned..KSA is getting there soon.. but Egypt has already more experience, Highly efficient shipyards and qualified man power..

KACST: Airborne AESA radar for SAR/GMTI "Basar"

SAR: Synthetic-aperture radar
GMTI: Ground Moving Target Indicator




The system was produced by the National Center for the Technology of Sensors and Defense Systems, one of the centers affiliated with the King City Abdulaziz for Science and Technology, KACST, through the Localization and Transfer of Technology Programs.

The system has been a transfer of technologies through the Italian-British company Selex, and the system algorithms have been developed through KACST to suit the desert environment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
It included joint research, development and demonstration purposes, and a series of training and industrial participation modules centered around Selex Galileo’s world renowned radar expertise..


The PicoSAR Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar provides superior all-weather SAR/GMTI capability for Unmanned Aerial Systems and fixed and rotary wing platforms. The array utilises low power, solid state Transmit Receive Modules (TRM) and delivers outstanding reliability. The flexibility of AESA technology allows the radar antenna to be resized to address specific platform constraints. Demonstrated on a number of fixed and rotary wing platforms, PicoSAR has been selected by seven international customers.
