Weibel Scientific is a specialised engineering company that develops and produces radars for the aerospace, forensicscience and defence industries all over the world.
Based in Alleroed, north of Copenhagen, Weibel is the global leader in the market for advanced Doppler radar systems. For more than 70 years, the cutting-edge radars have been protecting lives and assets on the ground, in the air and in space. Weibel is also proud to deliver the technology that plays a crucial role in securing the safety of astronauts on NASA space missions.
The company delivers radars to more than 45 countries across the globe, and recently, Indonesia has grown to become a very promising market. New agreements between the Indonesian Government and Weibel include the indispensable aid of Weibel Doppler radars in air surveillance of the nation’s 17 508 islands.
The MFSR-2100 system is the newest and most advanced radar developed by Weibel, with a performance unlike any other surveillance radar. The new radar combines a surveillance and high precision tracking radar in one system with market-leading accuracy and resolution. The MFSR-2100 is the only surveillance radar in the world with full tracking capability beyond 1000 km. The radar is based on Weibel’s proven tracking radar system technology, employing phased array technology, transmitter beam shaping and multi beam receivers. (photo : Weibel)
Island air surveillance is just one of many new Weibel projects in Indonesia, and the collaboration between the Danish and Indonesian business partners has proven extremely proficient and promising for both parties.
“Fast decision-making is part of the Weibel DNA. We take pride in diminishing administration and bureaucracy focusing on the needs of our clients instead of focusing on our own needs,” says CEO Peder R. Pedersen. “The Weibel way of working has turned out to be a great match with the Indonesian way of doing business. Indonesian culture is much more of a gentlemen’s agreement culture than the judicial business culture we have developed and grown accustomed to in Europe,” Pedersen says.
In Indonesia, business relationships are often more deep-seated and personal. For the same reason, Weibel’s top management has accompanied their engineers to the country many times to make sure everything is just right.

While most companies tend to outsource production processes, the opposite is the case in Weibel. Although Weibel exports all products abroad, the radar company has insourced
all core processes, from development to manufacturing, to Alleroed.
Weibel has one of the largest and most modern metal-processing facilities in the Nordics, and these advanced manufacturing facilities grant Weibel control over the entire production process. This allows the company to continuously deliver the best radar surveillance solutions – to Indonesia, to NASA, and to the rest of the world.
