Brazil Orders More FIELDGUARD 3 from Rheinmetall

Precision Fire Control System for Ranges up to 100km

Rheinmetall Air Defence announced on 17 May that it has won a follow-on order from Brazil for its FIELDGUARD 3 measurement system.

Placed by “a major Brazilian defence contractor,” the order addresses the fact that an existing customer is expanding its capacity by two further systems, with Rheinmetall to act as a subcontractor to Brazil’s Avibras, the general contractor under an existing framework agreement.

FIELDGUARD 3, which caters for ranges up to 100km, is an active fire control system whose special sensors enable it to measure projectile trajectory, thus assuring maximum precision when engaging targets. The programme was originally taken up in 2012, in partnership with Avibras, in order to realise the ASTROS 2020 multiple rocket launcher system (MLRS) programme.

Rheinmetall’s open and professional cooperation with Avibras has been hailed as a classic example of effective international defence cooperation. Both companies see additional growth potential for the system in various customer countries, especially in Asia and the Arab world.
