ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS) has signed on May 22 a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to supply its Ground Master 400 (GM400) series long-range air defense radars to the Kazakh Air Force.

This MoU provides for the development of GM400 radars by Granit Thales Electronics, a joint venture formed by Thales and SKTB Granit in 2012 under a defense-industry partnership. 20 radars are expected to come from this cooperation.

A first GM400 radar ordered by the Kazakh Air Force in 2013 was delivered recently. This radar is designed for both fixed-site operation under a radome and for operations in the field, where it can be deployed in under two hours.
