Austria orders Selex ES air defence radar

26th February 2014 - 15:51 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Selex ES will supply its RAT31DL/M deployable air defence radar (DADR) system to the Austrian Ministry of Defence under an order announced on 26 February. The contract includes an option for Austria to order an additional radar system of the same type.

The contract will see Selex ES provide the RAT31DL/M system with a 15 metre-high transportable and self-mounting tower. The system, part of the RAT31 3D long range family of radars, is designed to provide a rapidly deployable self-sufficient air defence capability. It can be deployed on unprepared terrain and controlled remotely. 

Selex ES will also provide logistic support under the contract, with the system scheduled to enter operation in 2016.

The new radar will enhance Austria’s fleet of existing radars which were provided by Selex ES during the 80s, when the company supplied five RAT 31 S medium range radars in both fixed and mobile configurations.
