Thales augments radar portfolio with small UAVs in mind
Conscious of the continued need for militaries to improve detection of small UAVs, Thales launched its Ground Observer 20 (GO 20) multi-mission radar on 5 October at its premises in Limour, northern France.
Thales officials told Shephard that GO 20 complements and augments the existing portfolio of ground surveillance radars made by the company, with no plans to replace any systems.
The portable GO 20 scans conventionally with a rotating antenna moving through 360 degrees of azimuth. The antenna can also be manually tilted to ensure it detects low-flying air targets.
