Deal includes Air Defence C2, Training and Logistics
Indra announced on 11 September that the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has ordered a LANZA LRR 3D early warning radar. The order also calls for delivery of associated equipment including Indra’s AirDef, an advanced air defence command and control system (C2). The company will also provide a comprehensive logistic package including training for RTAF operations and maintenance personnel, spares and warranty.
LANZA is a family of state-of-the-art 3D radar systems based on a fully modular and scalable architecture, both in hardware equipment and software packages/capabilities. Sharing common logistics and life-cycle support concepts, this family includes a wide variety of configuration possibilities, specific to each end user while achieving a workable trade-off between operational requirements and cost effectiveness. These multi-scenario, multi-role radars not only meet current NATO requirements, but also include advanced functionalities to meet future challenges.
All radar systems in the family are tri-dimensional, solid-state, operate in the L-band, apply pencil beam exploration (electronic control in elevation of radiation beams), with distributed architecture, redundant in critical elements, allowing for soft-fail degradation in the case of certain items failure. The company has been working on the design, manufacture, operation and integration of 3D radars for more than 30 years. Furthermore, the LANZA radar family is currently in service in the five continents.
