Ground Master 200 Multi-mission All-in-one (GM 200 MM/A) tactical air surveillance radar

The Brazilian Air Force has acquired the Ground Master 200 Multi-mission All-in-one (GM200 MM/A) tactical air surveillance radars.

The Department of Airspace Control (DECEA), through the Airspace Control System Implementation Commission (CISCEA), signed a contract for these radars.

The GM200 MM/A radar system supports air surveillance and ground-based air defense (GBAD) operations up to Mid-Range Air Defence (MRAD). It features a 4D Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) dual-axis multi-beam technology, offering precise detection over longer ranges and effective identification of low, small, and slow targets, such as mini-drones.

This radar system is designed for quick deployment, becoming operational in less than 15 minutes. It fits in a single autonomous 20-foot ISO standard package weighing less than 10 tons and includes built-in lifting systems for easy transport. The GM200 MM/A is sustainable for over 24 hours of operation with its embedded power generator and supports a Local Command and Control capability for up to two operators within the radar’s cabin.

The radar’s software-defined nature allows for future upgrades, adapting to evolving threats.

Omnisys, a subsidiary of Thales in Brazil, will provide local support and maintenance, ensuring the system's high availability and operational standards.
