Paris 2023: Thales and Robin Radar announce multi-year global framework agreement

At a signing ceremony at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, Robin Radar Systems and Thales formalised a multi-year Global Framework Agreement (GFA) between both parties, for the delivery of IRIS drone detection radars.

Under the agreement, Thales and Robin Radar Systems established purchase and supply conditions between both parties. This will enable the global roll out of Thales Counter-UAS solutions, with the inclusion of Robin Radar’s IRIS drone detection radar in projects worldwide.

As a radar detection technology leader, Robin Radar Systems was selected by Thales for its significant breakthroughs in the area of micro-Doppler radar; enabling easy identification of micro and mini drones, and most importantly, distinguishing them from birds; a technology critical to the success of advanced Counter-UAS systems.

The first application of the GFA is to support the EUR350 million PARADE programme, which was announced in 2022. The consortium, led by Thales and CS Group, was officially notified of the programme by the French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA).

The drone countermeasure systems will be deployed during large sporting events.
