Norway and the Netherlands have signed an agreement for five of Thales’ multi-mission radar.

The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency has signed an agreement with the Netherlands Defence Materiel Organisation for the acquisition of five Thales’ Ground Master 200 Multi-Mission Compact radars (GM200 MM/C).

The agreement is based on the strong international NATO cooperation within the ground-based domain, as well as strategic bi-lateral defence ties.

It also includes an option for three additional systems.

The GM200 MM/C has increased capabilities and is able to detect smaller, faster, more agile targets at longer ranges while retaining high tactical mobility and a short deployment time.

This first-ever government-to-government contract between the countries will provide the Norwegian and Netherlands Armed Forces with a common radar platform for further collaboration in the areas of threat assessment.

The radar is very flexible, it offers radar operators more time-on-target in order to gather as much information on incoming threats as possible.

It features new-generation 4D active electronically scanned array technology; a unique dual-axis multi-beam, which provides unrestricted flexibility in elevation and bearing; and offers excellent theatre protection.

The radar automatically detects, tracks and classifies multiple UAVs, rockets, artillery, mortar, missiles, aircraft, helicopters, and is particularly suited to weapon locating, air surveillance and air defence.
