Latest NSC gets TRS-3D Baseline D radar

11th January 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Defense and Space will provide the TRS-3D Baseline D multi-mode radar (MMR) for the US Coast Guard's ninth National Security Cutter (NSC), the company announced on 9 January.

TRS-3D radars are used on all coast guard NSCs under contract with Lockheed Martin. 

The multi-mode naval radar, designated AN/SPS-75, uses gallium nitride (GaN) technology for air and surface surveillance, target acquisition, self-defence, gunfire support and aircraft control. It automatically detects and tracks all types of air and sea targets, alleviating crew workload requirements. 

Mike Cosentino, president of Airbus Defense and Space, said: ‘The AN/SPS-75 is the right choice to meet coast guard requirements for a multi-mode radar. It is currently meeting operational requirements and is consistent with coast guard investments in training infrastructure ashore, as well as with their existing sustainment programme.’
