Land-based air defence systems for use by ground forces

Air force bases, strategic assets, critical military infrastructures and other land-based mobile platforms rely on layered air defence systems for all-round protection against modern symmetric and asymmetric threats, including small, high-speed aerial targets.

Ground-based air defence systems and solutions designed for use by armed forces include:

  • Stationary critical asset protection systems
  • Modular multi-mission mobile air defence systems
  • Military operations other than war (MOOTW) systems
  • Command and control systems for air defence
  • Fire control units for air defence systems
  • Multi-spectrum sensor netting solutions
  • Electro-optic target tracking sensors
  • Ground support solutions for military forces
  • Tactical and operative air defence networks

Need for sophisticated aerial defence systems

Armed forces need to deploy the most advanced short and very short-range air defence systems to protect their critical assets and troops from fast-approaching and more agile unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and precision-guided weapon systems.

Furthermore, modern self-propelled mobile defence systems protect vital stationary assets, including mechanised forces and convoys of the militaries.
