Selex ES wins French Air Force radar contract
Selex ES will supply six Precision Approach Radar (PAR) systems to the French Air Force following the signing of a new contract with the DGA of the French Ministry of Defence (MoD) worth €22 million. The company will supply the radar systems in the fixed version 2090CF and will also provide post-sales logistics support to the French Air Force.
The French Air Force has 15 PAR systems already in use. PAR is an X band radar system that assists military pilots during approach phases. The system is available in naval and land versions and enables precise instrumental landing even in bad weather conditions, including intense rain, wind and fog.
PAR is able to manage multiple aircraft simultaneously (up to 32) within its field of view (10° in elevation, +/-15° of azimuth coverage). According to the company, precision and accuracy exceed ICAO requirements and ensure optimum detection and distinction of targets.
The 2090 CF variant to be delivered is a fixed sheltered, transportable version with manual antenna deployment. The system is also available in the mobile variant. More than 50 systems have been delivered by Selex worldwide.
