The need for Integrated Air and Missile Defence (IAMD) solutions is even more significant since they allow a synergistic approach and the coordination in real-time of all available sensors and weapons, making it possible to counter any kind of threats. The advanced radar technology of Leonardo's KRONOS family fits perfectly into this ecosystem.

According to information released on November 4, 2021, Raytheon Missiles & Defense, a Raytheon Technologies business, in partnership with the Office of U.S. Naval Research, completed successful demonstrations of the Network Cooperative Radar program, an advanced radar system solution that supports the U.S. Navy’s goal of creating distributed sensing networks to defend against evolving threats. NCR supports the Navy’s Distributed Maritime Operations concept by giving electromagnetic maneuver warfare capabilities to the fleet.
