Russian United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) said the company is in the final stages of negotiating the sale of one Acacia-E automatic aerospace defense system to Algeria.

Acacia-E is described as a sophisticated airspace defense system that gives operators a tactical edge over competitors because it performs several roles while making battlefield decisions that achieve the overall goals of self-defense.

The Algerian Air Force already operates four Russian-made batteries of the S-300 PMU2 system ordered in 2006 to replace the aged S-125 (SA-3) SAM batteries.
