Thales has developed a new radar named “Ground Master 200 Multi Mission” to the family of 4D Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars.
According to the company, the Ground Master 200 establishes tracks faster and keeps them locked for longer, thus maximising time on target. This gives units the time to evaluate the threat and take appropriate action.
It includes Thales’s scalable and upgradable antenna architecture and software defined radar technology that offers upgrade capacity over the whole life cycle. It also features “dual-axis multi-beam”, which gives unrestricted steering flexibility in elevation and bearing, the company said in a statement.
The system will be offered in two versions, an “all in one” for air surveillance and ground based air defense up to medium range, and a “compact” version scalable to specific missions like artillery Counter Battery and Weapon Locating. Both are in advanced stage of development with first serial unit deliveries expected in 2021.
Royal Netherlands Army / Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) has signed the first contract with Thales for 9 Ground Master 200 Multi Mission “compact” version of the radars.
