At this year’s DIMDEX exhibition, the Qatar Armed Forces have announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the selection of the Thales SEARCHMASTER® multirole surveillance radar. The radar will equip their Optionally Piloted Vehicles – Aircraft (OPV-A) and respond to their land and naval surveillance requirements.

This airborne radar, tailored to all platform types meets the surveillance requirements of five mission types: ground surveillance, anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, maritime surveillance and tactical air support. The SEARCHMASTER® radar features an AESA active electronic scanning antenna, based on qualified technologies developed for the nose-mounted radar of the Rafale combat aircraft.

The Qatar Armed Forces aim at excellence and innovation. We have been partnering with Thales for decades. Thanks to this new Thales solution, we shall grow further our Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities.”
General Khalid Ahmad Al-Kuwari, Qatar Armed Forces.
