“We are deeply proud of this success”, said Mauro Moretti, adding: “air defence and surveillance systems are fundamental for a nation and Qatar has selected Finmeccanica to provide this strategic asset. The trust that has been placed on us will drive an even stronger commitment from Finmeccanica in this strategic region”.

This contract is the result of an intensive competitive selection process which confirmed the superior performance and operational capabilities of the KRONOS radar against its competitors. The contract includes ground-based radars, in fixed and mobile configurations, and associated networked command and control centers. The award of this significant contract is only the latest of a successful series of commercial achievements in the last years since the market launch of the KRONOS radar family.

KRONOS is a multi-mission, AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array), family of radar for strategic Surveillance and tactical Air Defence, designed to protect vital, civil and military assets and expeditionary forces through immediate detection and accurate tracking of all air targets, flying from very low to high altitude.

To date, 25 KRONOS radar systems have been delivered to international customers and are operational, on land or at sea, demonstrating their capacity on the field, standalone or integrated with legacy command and control systems and/or SAM weapon systems.
