Hensoldt’s newest solution to submarine sensor technology has been unveiled at IMDEX Asia 2019 - featuring a twin optronic mast, combining the OMS 150 and OMS 200 periscopes.

Intended to provide submarine capabilities in all light and weather conditions, it utilises optronics sensor technologies such as low light level TV camera, high-definition mid-wave IR and shortwave IR. Called the TRS-4D, the naval radar is designed to support anti-air and anti-surface operations, and is available with one rotating antenna or four fixed antenna panels, respectively.

Another part of Hensoldt’s display at the show is dedicated to protection systems enhancing the survivability of naval vessels. 

The Common Optoelectronic Laser Detection System provides early warning against laser threats such as laser beam riding missiles, laser target designators and range finders while secondary radar, transponders and encryption devices ensure friend-or-foe identification.

‘Modernisation efforts of naval capabilities will become increasingly crucial with the challenging environment of the Indo-Pacific,' said Nathan Manzi, head of Asia-Pacific at Hensoldt. 

‘As a specialist in defence electronics, we have a strong reference in this area with more than 3000 periscopes delivered to 20 prominent naval forces and more than 1000 radars installed with over 30 customer navies.’
