The second radar system being delivered to the German Navy for the K130 corvettes has passed factory acceptance testing by the German procurement authority, BAAINBw.

Hensoldt is equipping the second batch of the German Navy’s K130 corvettes with its TRS-4D Rotator naval radar and its MSSR 2000 ID friend-or-foe identification system.

The company has orders for seven radars which are intended for five ships and two land-based systems, to be delivered by 2022.

The TRS-4D Rotator is a variant of the TRS-4D with a mechanically rotating antenna that combines mechanical and electronic azimuth scanning, which allows targets to be detected and tracked very quickly. With high sensitivity, the AESA radar allows more precise detection, especially of small and manoeuvring objects, as well as faster confirmation of the target, which means that the ship crew has more time to respond to threats. The radar can be specifically programmed according to the customer’s needs, and its characteristics can be changed via the software to match new requirements that arise during its useful life.

The radar is designed for anti-aircraft and anti-surface operations.
