Leonardo Offers Multi-Mission Radar Systems

: Feb 7, 2020 - : 2:00 pm

Two variants of the Kronos family of radar systems designed and developed by Leonardo for specific applications in the land and naval domain will be displayed at the Changi Exhibition Center. The Land and Grand Mobile variants belonging to the multi-mission Kronos radar family, feature an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology, developed in-house by Leonardo.

The highly mobile and quickly deployable Kronos Land radar is at the heart of Italy’s SPADA NG air defence missile system and latest customer for this radar system was the Bangladesh Air Force.

The Kronos Land radar has a proven ability to detect and follow high manoeuvring tracks, hovering tracks and low-altitude tracks. It can, not only be easily integrated into a surveillance network but also control short-range air defence (SHORAD) and very short- range air defence (VSHORAD) systems.

With its ability to simultaneously detect and locate enemy artillery, the radar pro- vides Counter-Rocket, Artillery & Mortar (C-RAM) capabilities for directing fire from friendly forces, estimating and recording shell impact points. The Kronos Land radar’s superior Counter-UAS (C-UAS) capabilities, affords operators with the ability to detect and track potentially hostile drones in tough scenarios.

The Kronos Grand Mobile is a powerful land-based radar that can undertake surveillance and missile defence against traditional aerial threats, at a variety of altitudes, and defence against tactical ballistic missiles, whose speed and trajectories are extremely challenging even for modern defensive systems.

The Kronos radar family also features the Grand Naval maritime variant, Ground Shield variant and brand-new Kronos Dual Band variant, which is a four-face fixed radar system. These variants of the radar can be combined to deliver the full spectrum of Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) capabilities. Leonardo has sold over 40 Kronos family radars worldwide.
