Thales to supply two coastal surveillance radars for French armed forces
The French defence procurement agency (DGA) relies on Thales’s expertise in sensors and has placed an order for two Coast Watcher 100s. This coastal surveillance radar is specially designed for the critically important role of protecting national coastlines from a broad array of threats. The radars will be installed at the DGA missile test ranges of Mediterranean Sea and Landes. Thales will provide through-life support and security maintenance for seven years.
They will be delivered by the end of 2020. The high-performance Coast Watcher 100 radar enables optimal detection of small maritime threats in challenging environments (high sea states, rain, etc.) and low-altitude airborne threats.
