Thales will unveil its Ground Fire family, a range of latest-generation multifunction ground radar at Paris Air show 2017 starting this week.
The radar system, which is fully digital, will carry out air defence and surveillance missions simultaneously.
The Ground Fire versions, which are fully digital, are able to simultaneously detect and track a comprehensive range of targets such as ballistic missiles, with continuous 360° coverage in azimuth, up to 90° coverage in elevation and a range of 400 km. Very compact and deployable in under 15 minutes, the Ground Fire range will be extremely mobile and air transportable. The Ground Fire range system includes a mobile, truck-mounted antenna and is designed to operate on any type of ground surface.
“The latest-generation multifunction radar systems by Thales offer an unprecedented level of performance which make them unique on the market. Their multi-mission and multi-application capabilities, as well as their modular adaptability, provide our armed forces and national territories with enhanced protection”, said Serge Adrian, Senior Vice President for surface radar activities, Thales.
The Ground Fire range is identical to the Sea Fire family - the naval version which is set to equip the future intermediate-size frigates of the French Navy. Both families are based on the principle of modular, scalable architecture. Like those of the Sea Fire radar, the transmitter/receiver modules that make up the antenna will all be identical and interchangeable, to facilitate series production and maintenance operations. It will be possible to adapt the number of modules in order to modify the strength of the radar depending on the user’s needs.
