Leonardo’s Kronos Grand Mobile High Power (GM HP) radar has been chosen by the Greek Air Force as the integrated air and missile defence system to be used at the NAMFI (NATO Missile Fire Installation), the Alliance’s range based in the Isle of Crete.

It will ensure high air safety levels during exercises.

The sensor, delivery of which is expected by 2024, will contribute to Coalition Armed Forces’ high- quality training, as well as to testing and validation of systems.

Designed for both land and naval use

Kronos Grand Mobile High Power is a multifunctional C-band radar designed for air and sea surveillance and defence. It is the latest evolution of the Kronos family, able to deliver greater performance through the integration of more powerful TRMs (Transmit-Receive Modules). The sensor’s Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology draws on Leonardo’s fully-owned GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) and GaN (Gallium Nitride) manufacturing capability, based on patented technology.

Designed for both land and naval use and available in fixed and mobile configuration, all Kronos radar systems have multifunction and multi-mission capabilities optimised for multiple threats. In addition, the family of sensors includes a new development in L-band, Kronos Power Shield, specifically designed for long range ATBM (Anti Tactical Ballistic Missile) capabilities.
