The Italian Defence company Leonardo announced that Greece had chosen the Kronos Grand Radar for the Crete Shooting Range (PBK) and the NATO NAMFI (NATO Missile Fire Installation). The relevant announcement was made during the “Farnborough International Air show”. The agreement concerns the delivery of a self-propelled Kronos Grand to the Air Force (PA), which will be used for training activities and testing. The delivery of the radar is expected in 2024.


Kronos Grand is an AESA technology, air and surface surveillance and search radar. It can also provide fire control missions simultaneously with the search procedures. It can detect and track aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, boats and ships, missiles, rockets and artillery shells. The maximum range of the Kronos Grand is 300 kilometres, while the maximum detection altitude is 30,000 feet (9,144 meters).

Kronos Grand Mobile High Power is the latest evolution of the Kronos family with more powerful TRMs (Transmit-Receive Modules). Several customers worldwide, including in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and South America, already use the Kronos radar technology as the core sensor of their integrated air and missile defence system, with more than 40 radars in service. Kronos Grand Mobile High Power has already been selected as the surveillance and engagement radar for the Italian version of the Eurosam Consortium’s SAMP/T New Generation surface-to-air missile system.
