MASSY, FRANCE (BNS):
ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS), in collaboration with Thales Germany, has been selected by the German Federal Office for Defense Technology and Procurement to supply six Ground Master 400 (GM 400) long-range air defense radars for the Aktives Radarrundsuchgerät für den Einsatzführungsdienst (ARED) programme.
The ARED contract, valued around $140 million (€100 million), was awarded during a signing ceremony in Koblenz attended by representatives from the German Federal Office for Defense Technology and Procurement, according to a company news release.
ThalesRaytheonSystems and Thales Germany will work with local German companies, including SERCO GmbH located in Bonn and EADS Deutschland GmbH in Unterschleissheim, to replace the six Thales Medium-Power Radars (MPR) supplied in the late-1970s. TRS is contracted to supply the new radars by 2015.
"ThalesRaytheonSystems’ accurate, reliable Ground Master radar systems are capable of detecting both traditional and unconventional threats for homeland and tactical air defence," Philippe Duhamel, chief executive officer, ThalesRaytheonSystems, French Operations, was quoted as saying in the release.
The GM 400 is part of ThalesRaytheonSystems’ fully digital 3D air defense Ground Master radar family.
