Selex Sistemi Integrati (SSI)

Selex Sistemi Integrati belongs to the Finmeccanica industrial group and is the leading Italian company in the sector of electronic and integrated systems for Defence, including Ground, Sea and Airspace Surveillance, Air and Sea Traffic Control, National Security and Civil Defence (Homeland Protection). SSI is based in Italy, Germany, UK and United States, has 4,500 employees with a customer base in over 100 countries, an annual turnover of €900 mln.


SSI has a reputation for excellence in project management, design, manufacturing and system integration, supported by its key technologies, including systems engineering, radars engineering, software design, modelling and simulation.


SSI is actively participating to several international working groups and standardization initiatives in the field of Homeland Security, Network Centric Architectures and Interoperability, Surveillance Systems, and is also performing intensive research activities in these fields. With respect to civil European research initiatives, SSI has acted as coordinator in many projects in the contexts of Framework Programmes.


The Company gathered experience in the sensor field, in particular in so called Unattended Ground Sensor, where nodes are able to organize automatically their topology in order to aggregate groups of them into clusters, and groups of clusters into the network, where communications and routing are the main issues. Investigation are on the improvement by new technology and methodology from both architectural and data analysis point of view. In particular with respect to the large scale heterogeneous sensor architecture, communications, enhanced sensing capability, and power management and energy efficiency.


Ida M. Savino received the "Laurea" degree in Information Engineering and the Doctoral degree from the University of Pisa in 2004 and 2008 respectively. The doctoral research focuses on security of reconfigurable networked embedded systems by defining a security architecture aimed at the software reconfiguration in wireless networks, and rekeying protocols for secure communication in wireless sensor networks.


Andrea Kropp received the degree in Electronics Engineering in the 1995. He is currently Project Leader in the European R&D Projects. He joined Elsag Datamat, formerly Datamat, in 1997, joining the R&D Department. His expertise spans from system Integration, technological scouting, analysis, to product design and prototype, in the HF/VHF/UHF high data rate communications, Wireless technologies, Machine-2-Machine Systems, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) fields.


Claudio Santo Malavenda received the Master degree in Electronic Engineering cum laude at Rome University on 2006, with a thesis on "Study and project of a wireless sensor network simulator". He received the Master of Business Administration diploma in 2008. He is member of IEEE Society. He joined Elsag Datamat in 2007 working in the wireless sensor network group within the Defence Division. His experience span from HW and RF design, to firmware/software design for scaling and self organizing network protocols development and sensor network protocol security.
