Finmeccanica To Supply Air Surveillance And Defence System To Qatar
New Kronos AESA radar

Finmeccanica-Selex ES has won a contract from Qatar to supply “Low level radar” system to safeguard the airspace of the nation’s Armed Forces.

The system is a composition of a network of KRONOS radars and associated command and control centres, the company announced today.

The contract to supply air surveillance and defence system is worth some hundreds of millions euro. Mauro Moretti said “air defence and surveillance systems are fundamental for a nation and Qatar has selected Finmeccanica to provide this strategic asset.”

This contract is the result of an intensive competitive selection process which confirmed the superior performance and operational capabilities of the KRONOS radar against its competitors.

The contract includes ground-based radars, in fixed and mobile configurations, and associated networked command and control centres.

KRONOS is a multi-mission, AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array), family of radar for strategic Surveillance and tactical Air Defence, designed to protect vital, civil and military assets and expeditionary forces through immediate detection and accurate tracking of all air targets, flying from very low to high altitude.
