Slovakia tweaks tender in search of 3D airspace surveillance radars

27th July 2020 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The government of Slovakia is requesting new proposals from allies for 3D radars, to ensure airspace surveillance coverage within the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defense System.

‘Radars are currently the biggest problem in terms of technology of the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic. The vast majority of established radar systems have gone beyond their lifetime, [and] some for a very long time,’ Jaroslav Naď, Minister of Defence, said on 24 July.

The Slovak government decided to amend a tender announced by the previous administration, citing questions over the transparency of the process (a government statement mentioned there had been ‘several official international complaints’).

A new government-level RfP has been forwarded to France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Turkey, the UK and the US, all of which have previously communicated interest in providing 3D radars to Slovakia.

The Slovak MoD expects to spend €155 million ($181.8 million) on procurement of 17 3D radars (six medium-range , five short-range and six very short-range) and it wants to ensure a role for local industry in the programme in component production and system maintenance.
