Thales and BEL-Thales Systems Limited (BTSL), the joint venture between Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and Thales, have signed a partnership agreement for the joint development of the PHAROS fire control radar for both gun and missile systems.

BTSL will develop the mechanical design and radar processing modifications while Thales will be responsible for the design and production of the radar antenna.

PHAROS is a tracking radar system for gun and missile control. Its electronic beam steering capability enables multiple-target tracking and integrated guided ammunition control. PHAROS controls any medium caliber type gun, ranging from 30 mm to 76 mm for naval and ground-based applications. PHAROS provides defence against small, fast moving and highly maneuverable air and surface targets.
