The STX Shipyard in Rauma/Finland has awarded Cassidian a contract to deliver the radar by mid-2013 for integration into the new ship.“To provide reliable surveillance data during the demanding Coast Guard missions in the difficult littoral environment of the Finnish coastal waters you need extremely powerful sensors“, said Elmar Compans, Head of Sensors & Electronic Warfare at Cassidian. “Our TRS-3D radar has operationally proven that it is the right answer to these challenging requirements.”The radar is intended to provide a reliable and comprehensive situation picture as well as safe helicopter guidance and Search-and-Rescue (SAR) missions under the extreme environmental conditions of the Finnish littoral waters. TRS-3D is a 3-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.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, August 14, 2012; Image: Cassidian View post tag: Guard View post tag: Finnishcenter_img View post tag: OPV View post tag: Naval View post tag: Border View post tag: New Back to overview,Home naval-today Cassidian to Equip New OPV for Finnish Border Guard Equipment & technology Share this articlelast_img read more
