Hensoldt radars for German corvettes
Hensoldt will deliver its TRS-4D Rotator naval radar and MSSR 2000 ID friend-or-foe identification system (IFF) for the second batch of the German Navy’s K130 corvettes, the company announced on 13 February.
The company was awarded a corresponding order for seven systems of each type from the German procurement authority BAAINBw, which are to be delivered by 2022.
Hensoldt has previously equipped the first K130 batch with its TRS-3D radar. Moreover, the TRS-4D is already being used on board the new F125 frigate in a configuration comprising four fixed planar arrays.
For the second batch of five ships, the TRS-4D will be supplied in a version comprising a mechanically rotating antenna. This radar system is part of a family of products which also include ground-based air defence radar, TRML-4D. Its rotating antenna combines mechanical and electronic azimuth scanning, which allows targets to be detected and tracked quickly.
The software defined radar’s AESA technology helps to detect and identify small targets. The TRS-4D has been designed to be used for anti-aircraft and anti-surface operations.
The system also includes an MSSR 2000 I secondary radar for IFF, which complies with all IFF standards.
