Anzac-class frigates to get radar upgrade
CEA Technologies has been awarded a contract worth AUD$148 million to provide a new air search radar, known as the CEAFAR2-L, for the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) fleet of Anzac-class frigates, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 4 October.
The upgrade is part of a $400 million programme that will upgrade the frigates to ensure the RAN is able to adapt to modern and evolving air and missile threats and maintain a capability edge.
The radar, developed by CEA Technologies, is an active phased array radar configurable to meet operational, physical and cost requirements for military and civil applications.
Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne, said: ‘The air search radar represents a leading-edge technology innovation and reflects a positive and effective ongoing collaboration between defence and CEA Technologies over the last 15 years.
'CEA Technologies will build on the technology developed for the Anzac-class frigates to develop the next-generation of air search radars for the future frigates.'
