MBDA has unveiled a new version of its ATLAS vehicle mounted short range air defence system. The twin MISTRAL surface to air missile launching system mount has been fitted with the Sagem Défense Sécurité SA MATIS MP2 thermal imager and with two ITT Communications Systems SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System) RT-1702 VHF tactical communication systems coupled to ELNO France SAS headphones.

The 4th generation IR thermal device  allows the day/night detection of aerial targets at ranges in excess of 10km. ATLAS may be co-ordinated with a MISTRAL Co-ordination Post (MCP).
