BAE Systems will present its next-generation anti-aircraft system, the 'Tridon Mk2,' based on the Bofors 40mm gun, at the upcoming Eurosatory 2024 exhibition.

Today's battlefields witness tens of thousands of drone takedowns each month, unveiling a critical gap in NATO allies' air defense capabilities. BAE Systems asserts that the Tridon Mk2 provides a solution to bridge this divide.

The Tridon Mk2 is a mobile anti-aircraft system with high-precision, teamed with critical munitions capabilities, including the Bofors 3P programmable munition, designed for defeating aerial and land-based threats. The system has an effective range of up to 12km, depending on the target, selected ammunition, sensor suite and surrounding terrain. It offers the ability to mix a large variety of ammunition in the same firing salvo.

The system’s modularity enables it to be mounted on various platforms and fully operated from within the cabin. This allows for both rapid deployment into action and for troops to regroup to avoid enemy countermeasures. It can also be off-loaded at strategic locations and remotely controlled from a safe distance.

Each system has its own day-night acquisition sensors and fire-control system, which makes it a cost-effective solution to protect large areas.

The Tridon Mk2 will be displayed on the BAE Systems stand at Eurosatory from 17 – 21 June 2024.
