The Greek Air Force has chosen Leonardo's Kronos Grand Mobile High Power (GM HP) radar as the integrated air and missile defence system to be used at the NAMFI (NATO Missile Fire Installation), the Alliance's range based in the Isle of Crete.

The radar will ensure high air safety levels during exercises. The award has been announced at Farnborough International Airshow. The sensor, delivery of which is expected by 2024, will contribute to Coalition Armed Forces’ high-quality training, as well as to testing and validation of systems.

Kronos Grand Mobile High Power is a multifunctional C-band radar designed for air and sea surveillance and defence. It is the latest evolution of the Kronos family, able to deliver greater performance through the integration of more powerful TRMs (Transmit-Receive Modules). The sensor’s Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology draws on Leonardo’s fully-owned GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) and GaN (Gallium Nitride) manufacturing capability, based on patented technology. It is developed at the company’s in-house foundry, a high-tech site specialising in the production of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC - Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits).

Designed for both land and naval use and available in fixed and mobile configuration, all Kronos radar systems have multifunction and multi-mission capabilities optimized for multiple threats. In addition, the family of sensors includes a new development in L-band, Kronos Power Shield, specifically designed for long range ATBM (Anti Tactical Ballistic Missile) capabilities.
