Cassidian wins Finnish OPV radar contract

10th August 2012 - 16:22 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cassidian has announced that it will equip the new Offshore Patrol Vessel of the Finnish Border Guard with its TRS-3D naval radar under a contract received from the STX Shipyard in Rauma/Finland. The company announced the contract on 10 August.

Cassidian said the radar is intended to provide a 'reliable and comprehensive situation picture' as well as safe helicopter guidance and SAR missions under the extreme environmental conditions of the Finnish littoral waters.

A 3-dimensional multimode naval radar for air and sea surveillance, the system includes the ability to correlate plots and tracks of targets with Cassidian's MSSR 2000 I identification system for automatic identification of vessels and aircraft. The company will deliver the radar by mid-2013 for integration into the new ship.

According to the company, TRS-3D is in service with the Squadron 2000 patrol vessels and the Hämeenma-class ships of the Finnish Navy, as well as a number of  navies and coast guards worldwide, including the K130 corvettes of the German Navy, the US Coast Guard National Security Cutters, the US Navy Littoral Combat Ships and the Norwegian Coast Guard vessels of the Nordkapp and Svalbard class.
