Thales develops GM200 MM radar
Thales has added a new Ground Master 200 Multi Mission (GM200 MM) radar to its family of 4D Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars.
The radar is designed to support modern combat operations, which require the ability to track smaller, more agile and low flying threats that can quickly change speeds to evade radar detection and tracking.
The Ground Master 200 establishes tracks faster and keeps them locked for longer, thus maximising time on target. This gives units the time to evaluate the threat and take appropriate action. The radar can also acquire smaller and slower targets.
The AESA radar includes Thales’s scalable and upgradable antenna architecture and software defined radar technology that offers upgrade capacity over the whole life cycle. It also features dual-axis multi-beam, which provides unrestricted steering flexibility in elevation and bearing.
The GM200 MM will be offered in two different versions: an all in one version for air surveillance and ground based air defence up to medium range, and a compact version scalable to specific missions such as artillery counter battery and weapon locating. Both versions are highly automated and easy to transport.
The Netherlands Defence Materiel Organisation has signed a contract for nine Ground Master 200 MM radars in the compact version, under the Royal Netherlands Army Counter-Rocket Artillery Mortar and Class 1-UAV detection project.
The radars are currently in advanced stage of development with first serial unit deliveries expected in 2021.
