Rheinmetall Wins Follow-up Order From Brazil For Fieldguard 3 Measurement System

The Düsseldorf-based high-tech group Rheinmetall with its Swiss subsidiary Rheinmetall Air Defence has won an order for additional Fieldguard 3 military measurement systems, from an unspecified Brazilian defence contractor.

Fieldguard is an active fire control system whose special sensors enable it to measure the trajectory of projectiles, thus assuring maximum precision when engaging targets.

A current customer is expanding its capacity by two more systems, with Rheinmetall serving as a subcontractor to Brazil’s Avibras, the general contractor under an existing framework agreement. The new order, booked in March 2019, is worth a figure in the low double-digit million-euro range, the company said in a press release Friday.

The programme was taken up in 2012 in partnership with Avibras of Brazil in order to realize the ASTROS 2020 multiple rocket launcher system. The Fieldguard 3 measurement system can cover ranges of up to 100 kilometres.
