UAE Upgrading Its Air Defenses With GM200 Radars
The Ground Master 200 radar is carried as a single integrated package on 1 6×6 truck, and all of the equipment is housed inside a 20′ ISO container. The 3D radar scan offers 70 degree elevation and can extend up to 80,000 feet, using a digital stacked beam. Rotation gives it 360 degree coverage, and engagement mode doubles its rotation speed to 40 rpm, while shrinking effective range from 250 km to 100 km.
The radar is touted as being able to handle C-RAM mortar/rocket tracking tasks, including point of launch and point of impact calculations, while also performing standard air defense functions against targets that include high-diving cruise missiles. This versatility, and the system’s mobility by truck and in C-130 aircraft, make it very useful for covering bases and forward operating areas.
