Paris, France (SPX) Aug 20, 2008
EADS Defence and Security provides Lockheed Martin with its proven TRS-3D naval radar in order to enhance situational awareness, and thus the security in littoral waters, for the U.S. Coast Guard's "Deepwater" programme.

As reported by EADS Defence and Security (DS) , the company has received a follow-on order from Lockheed Martin's Maritime Systems and Sensors business, valued at approx. 30 m EUR to supply the U.S. Coast Guard with the new radar, bringing the number of TRS-3D radars employed in the Deepwater programme to five.

The TRS-3D is deployed on the new National Security Cutters specially designed for homeland security missions in offshore and littoral zones. Three radars have been delivered on time, with two more deliveries planned for end of 2008 and summer 2009.

The procurement of more radars is envisaged according to the progress of the ship building programme.

"Preserving maritime security, and particularly of ports and coastal areas, demands highly capable sensors to ensure situational awareness at any time," explains Bernd Wenzler, CEO Defence Electronics, an integrated activity of EADS Defence and Security.

"Our TRS-3D radar has proven in service that it is the right answer to these complex demands."

The TRS-3D is a three-dimensional multimode naval radar for air and sea surveillance. It includes the ability to correlate target information with the MSSR 2000 I identification system for automatic identification of vessels and aircraft.

With this order, the radar has been sold in 50 units worldwide; it is the most widely used naval radar in its class.

Among the ships equipped are the new K130 corvettes of the German Navy, the "Squadron 2000" patrol boats of the Finnish Navy and the Norwegian Coast Guard "Nordkapp" and "Svalbard" icebreakers.
