Terma radar for Indonesian coast guard

20th October 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Terma will supply Scanter 6000 radars to the Indonesian coast guard (KPLP) under an order announced on 18 October.

The radars will be integrated with the Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine Vision Master automatic radar plotting aid (ARPA) display system on five vessels to provide navigation, surveillance, and helicopter control capabilities.

The high-resolution Scanter 6000 series will enable the Indonesian patrol boats to detect and track small targets – from the horizon up to the ship itself – on the surface and in low-level air space and in all conditions. 

Jesper Tolstrup, director, radar applications for Terma, said: ‘Although these patrol vessels do not have facilities for embarked aircraft, the radar provides the capability for directing helicopters for search and rescue, fisheries patrol, pollution monitoring, or other enforcement missions. The radar is also optimal for detecting or controlling unmanned aircraft.’

Scanter 6000 is a coherent X-band 2D solid state, all-weather radar designed to provide improved surface and low airspace situational awareness.
