First Export Success for the COBRA Radar in the Gulf region

(PresseBox) ( Munich, )
Euro-Art International EWIV announced today the award of a contract from the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces for the supply and commissioning of 3 Counter Battery Radars (COBRA). Perfectly adapted to battlefields, COBRA high mobility weapon location radar will protect UAE Armed Forces on the move.

COBRA was developed for France, Germany and UK as the first multifunctional counter battery radar in the world with a fully active phased array antenna, enabling accurate multiple targets detection within a short reaction time. Its modular architecture provides high reliability and system availability. During all live fire trials to which COBRA participated, including desert trials in UAE during summer 2005, in competition with other weapon locating radars, COBRA achieved performance (location range as well as detection and location accuracy) were far better than the COBRA Specifications.

Deployed in several out-of-area operations including UN missions, German systems are involved in the Defence Against Mortar Attacks (DAMA) initiative that is part of the NATO Conference of National Armament Directors' Programmes of Work for the Defence against Terrorism. French systems are in operation in Lebanon, UK's systems in Iraq.
