ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop and supply fully digital 3D air surveillance radars, Ground Master 400 (GM400), for the Kazakh Air Force.

The GM400 radars will be built by Granit Thales Electronics (GTE), a joint venture between Thales and SKTB Granit formed in 2012.

As part of the MoU, GTE will develop 20 radars at its facility outside Almaty in Kazakhstan.

The GM400 multi-mission tactical 3D air defence radar is designed to offer high detection performance, track accuracy, operational availability, simplified maintenance and high mobility.

In 2013, the Kazakh air force ordered its first GM400 radar, which was recently delivered and is currently being showcased at the KADEX defence exhibition in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The recently delivered GM400 radar was designed for both fixed-site operations and could be deployed in under two hours.

"The recently delivered GM400 radar was designed for both fixed-site operations and could be deployed in under two hours."

Kazakhstan defence deputy minister Okas Bazargaliyevich Saparov said: "We are delighted to be able to exploit the operational advantages of this radar system, which will give Kazakhstan a long-range air surveillance capability and increase protection of our key assets."

ThalesRaytheonSystems CEO Philippe Duhamel said the GM400s will boost Kazakhstan’s air defence capabilities, giving the air force the ability to detect a broad array of threats from low to high altitude and thus assure extended air surveillance over its territory.

Established in 2001, TRS currently employs 1,600 people and develops air defence systems, command and control systems, 3D air defence radars, and battlefield and counterbattery radars.
