Thales has received an order from the French defence procurement agency (DGA) to supply two Coast Watcher 100 coastal surveillance radars.

The radars will be installed at two DGA missile test ranges where they will ensure protection for tactical test areas, monitor maritime traffic and detect threats. The X-band long-range radar can detect inflatables, jet skis and other small craft, commercial aircraft and warships as well as low-altitude airborne threats.

Serge Adrian, director of surface radar activities for Thales, said: ‘Thales’s advanced technologies help customers make the right decisions in real time. With the Coast Watcher 100 maritime surveillance radars, the French defence procurement agency will have a state-of-the-art detection, surveillance and control capability.’

The radars will be delivered by the end of 2020.
