SELEX Sistemi Integrati, a Finmeccanica company, has been awarded contracts to supply a KRONOS radar system both to the Royal Thai Navy and the Royal Thai Air Force.
The system which will be supplied to the Royal Thai Navy will equip the Royal Navy Air and Coastal Defence Command and be settled in an area in the South of Bangkok. It will be integrated within the air surveillance network of the Royal Thai Navy.
The system which will be supplied to the Royal Thai Air force will be installed in the Eastern region of Thailand and connected with the Royal Thai Air defence system.
KRONOS is a multifunctional radar system able to expand the missile and air defence also against threats today retained insidious for the national security, such as cruise missiles and low altitude UAVs both when these are employed as stand-alone threats for terroristic attacks in peaceful times and when in use in a multiple deployment, which is typical of attacks brought by military enemies.
The system, thanks to its radar provided with an AESA (Active Electronic Scanned Array) antenna, is able to scan the surrounding space to search for targets, so working as a search radar. Once one or more air threats are identified, it can track them with extreme precision and continuity such as a fire control system. These capabilities are deployed simultaneously and in a very fast an automatic manner.
