The Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command has extended its radar support agreement with Thales for 2018-2023, the Finnish Ministry of Defence announced on 2 July.

Under the agreement, Thales will continue to provide maintenance for Finnish long-range surveillance radar and medium-range surveillance radar systems.

The overall value of the framework agreement is up to $23.2 million.

Originally purchased in 1988, the long-range surveillance radar is a ground-based air surveillance radar system capable of detecting objects in distant and high altitudes. Purchased from Thales in 2009, the medium-range surveillance radar forms the core of the air force's transportable air surveillance radar system.
