EUA entrega a Ucrania el sistema avanzado de defensa aérea NASAMS

By Jordi Bou

June 28, 2022 - El presidente Volodymyr Zelenskiy ha confirmado que Ucrania recibió sistemas de defensa aérea sofisticados de Estados Unidos. El Sistema Nacional de Misiles Avanzados Superficie-Aire (NASAMS) ayudará a defender grandes ciudades como Kiev y Odesa contra los misiles rusos.

Designed and manufactured by the Norwegian company Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace in cooperation with U.S. firm Raytheon, NASAMS is used by the U.S. to protect the sensitive air space around the White House and Capitol in Washington DC.

A standard NASAMS unit has a modular design including a Fire Distribution Centre command post, an active 3D radar MPQ64F1 Sentinel, a passive electro-optic and infra-red sensor and a number of missile canister launchers with AMRAAM missiles. Normally, four NASAMS units are netted in a battalion network.

In a battalion configuration comprising of up to 12 launchers and up to 72 missiles loaded, all missiles can be fired against individual targets in less than 15 seconds.
