Counter-battery for freedom of manoeuvre
Arthur is a lightweight, highly mobile weapon locating system (WLS), tactically deployed close to the forward line of own troops. It is made to give the commander freedom of manoeuvre and enables quick counter-fire, making the threat the target, in no time.
In the battlefield it rapidly detect and track artillery projectiles and calculate points of origin for counter battery and generate points of impact to the intelligence community. The mobility, operational range and high accuracy makes it uniquely suited for all types of Counter Battery Operations.
High reliability and maintainability
Arthur is in currently operational in twelve countries, among them Norway, Sweden, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Spain, Italy, Greece and the UK. The system is battle-proven used by the British forces in the second Gulf War in 2003 and served with British as well as other forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, where it was used in 24/7 combat operations.
One high-mobility vehicle
Arthur is designed with unique mobility and ease of operation in mind. The entire system may be integrated into any fighting vehicle large enough to carry the 3 m antenna. Thus, there is no need for a specific vehicle in the fleet due to the radars’ a very low logistic footprint.
Superior system survivability
Arthur will itself be a high-priority target. Survival limits the useful operating time for any radar sensor at any single deployment site to less than 5 minutes, based on the latest conflicts. Deploying in less than two minutes maximises the useful operating time at a given location without jeopardising system survival.
