Cas­sid­ian radar for Fin­nish pa­trol boat

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Cas­sid­ian, the de­fence and se­cu­rity division of EADS, will equip the new off­shore pa­trol ves­sel of the Fin­nish Bor­der Guard with its proven TRS-3D naval radar. The STX Ship­yard in Rauma/Fin­land has awarded Cas­sid­ian a con­tract to de­liver the radar by mid-2013 for in­te­gra­tion into the new ship.

The radar is in­tended to pro­vide a re­li­able and com­pre­hen­sive sit­u­a­tion pic­ture as well as safe he­li­copter guid­ance and Search-an­dRes­cue (SAR) mis­sions un­der the ex­treme en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions of the Fin­nish lit­toral wa­ters. TRS-3D is a three-di­men­sional mul­ti­mode naval radar for air and sea sur­veil­lance. It in­cludes the abil­ity to cor­re­late plots and tracks of tar­gets with Cas­sid­ian’s MSSR 2000 I iden­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem for au­to­matic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of ves­sels and air­craft.

TRS-3D is in ser­vice with the “Squadron 2000” pa­trol ves­sels and the “Hämeenma”class ships of the Fin­nish Navy. With more than 60 radars op­er­ated by navies and coast guards world­wide, TRS-3D is the mar­ket leader in its class. Among the ships equipped are the K130 corvettes of the Ger­man Navy, the US Coast Guard Na­tional Se­cu­rity Cut­ters, the US Navy Lit­toral Com­bat Ships and the Norwegian Coast Guard ves­sels of the “Nord­kapp” and “Sval­bard” class.
