Leonardo announces new RAT31 DL order

19th November 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Thai Air Force has ordered an additional RAT 31DL air defence radar system from Leonardo, the company announced on 18 November.

The long-range radar will be installed at a site in Samui in order to protect the country’s southern region.

Leonardo originally supplied the same system to the Royal Thai Air Force in 2015.

The RAT31 DL is an advanced, L-band, solid-state phased array 3D surveillance radar, with a range of over 500km. It is designed to operate as part of modern military air defence systems. With flexible and modular architecture, the radar can generate multiple radar beams simultaneously; and it also features frequency agility modes, which provide resistance against Anti-Radiation Missiles and Electronic Counter Measures.

The radar is part of a family of long-range systems designed to protect against air and missile threats, including ballistic missiles, for homeland security and expeditionary missions. It can adapt to the challenges posed by a broad range of operational scenarios, including facing jamming and heavy clutter at the same time.
