Royal Thai Army places additional order for STARStreak Air Defence Missile Systems

 

September 16, 2015 Thales Group

 

Thales announced today at DSEI that it has signed a multi-million pound contract with DataGate in Thailand to supply the Royal Thai Army with the STARStreak air defence missile system.

 

This contract follows on from Thailand’s initial purchase of STARStreak in 2012.

 

The system comprises STARStreak missiles, the world’s fastest very short range air defence (VSHORAD) missile and Lightweight Multiple Launcher (LML).  The LML tripod-based system allows swift deployment of STARStreak missile to deal with attacks from low-level fighter aircraft, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and attack helicopters.  The system plays a key part in the air defence forces continued commitment to protecting the Kingdom of Thailand.

 

Victor Chavez, CEO of Thales in the UK, said: “STARStreak is the leading VSHORAD system in the world today, enabling nations to protect key assets against both emerging and established threats.  We are honored to continue to serve the Royal Thai Army as a key supplier for Thailand’s advanced air defence capability.”
