The fleet of approach radars serving French aviation and naval facilities will be updated with Thales’ next-generation primary and secondary approach radars, which offer increased operating capabilities and detection performances.
Thales has won a contract to supply primary and secondary approach radars to renew the fleet of approach radars for French air and naval bases from 2025. The contract is part of the “Detection 22” program within phase 5 of the DGA project SCCOA. Thales will provide its next-generation primary and secondary approach radars, STAR NG and RSM NG, to offer air surveillance 24/7 with improved operational capabilities and detection performances. The portfolio of radars includes a family of radars with higher performances for precision and detection, development of new features such as electronic protection measures, 3D/altimetry, detection of low/zero speed aircrafts and merging traditional Mode S with ADS-B detection. Thales has a solid reputation for performance and reliability in air surveillance and has introduced many leading innovations for airspace safety to meet evolving customer needs in both civil and military domains.
