The COBRA for COunter Battery RAdar was jointly developed by Thales, Airbus Defence and Space and Lockheed Martin for the German, French and British armed forces. The radar entered into service in 2005.

The COBRA is considered the world's most advanced land-based weapon locating system, comprising a high-performance radar, advanced processing, and integrated, flexible command, control, and communication system. The design includes state-of-the-art digital processing and advanced active, solid-state phased array antenna comprising several thousand transmit/receive modules.

The COBRA mission is to locate mortars, rocket launchers and artillery batteries and to provide information for countering their effectiveness. With a detection range up to 100 km COBRA is capable of locating and classifying up to 40 batteries in two minutes. It will also be able to monitor breaches of cease-fire when deployed in a peace-keeping role.
