ThalesRaytheonThales Raytheon Systems has sold a set of GroundMaster 200 radars to Singapore, adding to that country's land-based air defense systems highlighted at the Singapore Air zdhow, AINonline reported Friday.

Chris Pocock writes the Raytheon-Thales Group joint venture designed the 3D digital radar system to transmit signals in the S-band for target detection at any altitude.

Pocock reports the Singapore air force has renamed the radars Shikra, or the System for Hybrid Interceptor and Knowledge of Recognized Air.

The government purchased MBDA's Aster 30 ground-based air defense missiles in December to integrate with a radar and command-and-control system, according to the report.
