The MADEX 2021 naval defense trade show is an opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to discuss naval programs and equipment with local shipyards and system providers, to meet with the Korean Navy and program procurement bodies, as well as with high-level delegations, including foreign ones. The event takes place in Busan (South Korea), as part of a broader "Marine Week" event from 9 to 12 June 2021. 

At MADEX 2021, French Company Lacroix presents its full range of naval solutions (SYLENA, LW, MK1, MK2, DAGAIE, K-RBOC) that meet all the operational needs for self-protection of naval platforms of all types (OPV, frigates, corvettes and large ships).

For more than 10 years, the Lacroix company has developed the latest generation of Decoy Launching Systems to meet world navies' requirements: as the SYLENA LW, SYLENA MK1 and SYLENA MK2.

From patrol boats to frigates, the SYLENA range of systems has been developed by Lacroix to offer an optimized solution for ship protection with RF and IIR (Imaging Infrared) SEACLAD decoy effects. Unlike many Decoy Launching Systems which deploy chaff, regarded as outdated with respect to modern electric warfare due to chaff discrimination systems, SYLENA utilizes corner reflector (CNR) technology.

The SYLENA launchers are fully compatible with corner reflectors (CNR) and Lacroix RF decoys are based solely on this technology: Lacroix does not mix CNR with chaff, in order to preserve the credibility of the decoy.It offers omnidirectional (360°) protection and is effective whatever the missile's relative bearing, thanks to the omnidirectional characteristics of its decoy. For anti-torpedo tactics, SYLENA MK2 offers a smart solution with the ability to deploy the SEALAT-CANTO® anti-torpedo decoy.
