The Oerlikon Skyshield® Air Defence System – Countering the Threat from Above

Rheinmetall Air Defence

In contemporary conflicts, where the threat is often asymmetric, attacks can come at any time and any place - especially from above. Countermeasures are becoming increasingly expensive. Modern air defence systems therefore have to be able to counter threats effectively and at an affordable price - the core competence of Rheinmetall Air Defence AG (RAD) in Zurich. The company's comprehensive portfolio includes a full range of fire control technology, radar and electro-optical sensor systems as well as weapons and ammunition. RAD systems cover the complete kill chain, from target detection, identification and tracking to engagement and neutralisation.
