Following the supply of a first air defense system to Ukraine in 2023, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence has decided to acquire a second system, due to its proven efficiency on the battlefield. A complete detection and defense system for Ukraine. Ensuring the protection of the population and armed forces requires the earliest possible detection of threats, wherever and whenever they arise – at sea, in the air or on land. The CM200 detects and tracks simultaneously low to high-altitude targets in all types of environments. It provides air defense weapon coordination for Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) up to Extended Short Range Air Defense (E-SHORAD).

“This second air defence system will strengthen the protection of the Ukrainian territory, enabling early detection of existing threats. Thales is proud to put its expertise at the service of Ukraine’s protection”, Hervé Dammann, Executive Vice-President, Land and Air Systems said.

The Ground Master 200 radar establishes tracks faster and keeps them locked for longer, thus maximising situational awareness. This gives time to the ControlView command and control system to evaluate the threat, while allocating the appropriate firing units for air target engagement through each weapon terminal. Thales is the benchmark European systems integrator capable of integrating air defense systems and managing their compatibility with other existing systems, a real asset for users to deploy rapidly and efficiently.

As a recognised European leader in systems integration, Thales has the capability to integrate air defense systems-of-systems and to manage compatibility with other defenses, which is a real advantage for users needing to deploy their assets quickly and efficiently.
