Coast Watcher 100 surveillance radar

France’s Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) has selected Thales’ Coast Watcher 100 radar to perform surveillance activities.

The Coast Watcher 100 will be deployed for surveillance at the DGA missile test ranges of Mediterranean Sea and Landes, the company said in a statement.

It is a low altitude surveillance radar built around a Modular Solid-State Transmitter associated with a COTS (PC) hardware-based processing.

The Kinematic Scan To Scan signal processing technology of the algorithm, performs a precise filtering of all environmental clutters, allowing precise small target detection, discrimination and a low false alarm rate.

Deliveries are scheduled to take place by the end of 2020.
