Brazilian Army receives STREV radar components

28th May 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Brazilian Army Assessment Centre (CAEx) has received components of the ASTROS tracking radar pedestal and antenna which will be integrated into the Transportable Flight Engine Tracking System (STREV). The delivery was confirmed by a Brazilian Army statement made on 26 May.

The development of STREV forms part of the Instruction Field Instrumentation Project which was outlined in the Army Strategic Plan (PEEx) 2020-2023 and forms part of the ASTROS 2020 Army Strategic Programme.

The radar is manufactured in France and was initially acquired by Brazil in 1974, meaning that receipt of this new equipment represents a significant step in the system’s modernisation.

STREV will enable the CAEx to carry out tracking activities for missiles, rockets, heavy weapon munitions and UAS which will support the research and development of similar products by the Army Science, Technology and Innovation System and industrial defence base.
