Thales Group will showcase its new Ground Master 60 multi-mission radar this week at the Eurosatory defense expo, the company announced Monday.
The Ground Master 60, the latest offering in the Ground Master family of air defense radars, features a multi-mission radar offering on-the-move detection capacity, Thales said in a statement.
The short-range radar is intended to be used with short- and extremely short-range weapon systems.
It can detect all types of targets while on the move and its small size means it can be adapted for deployment on a vehicle.
Ground Master 60 can detect rockets, artillery shells and mortars, Thales said.
It also comes with a generator and air conditioning system and can be set up and broken down very quickly. It can also be airlifted to inaccessible areas.
