HENSOLDT UK has supplied a radar suite consisting of Kelvin Hughes Mk11 S and X Band radar systems to the Philippine Navy frigate BRP JOSÉ RIZAL, recently delivered by Hyundai Heavy Industries, the company announced on 6 August.

The SharpEye Mk11 radars take advantage of the Kelvin Hughes’ advanced solid state SharpEye Doppler technology that brings full situational awareness to users, even in severest weather conditions. The solid-state SharpEye transceivers are located upmast in a carbon composite housing which brings additional benefits such as ease of installation and high reliability. The use of a direct drive motor system, rather than the traditional antenna rotator gearbox, reduces maintenance.

This is one of the first complete HENSOLDT radar suites to be delivered and includes the company’s TRS-3D, a three-dimensional multimode naval radar for air and sea surveillance. The TRS-3D includes a secondary radar MSSR 2000 I for Identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) as well as the SharpEye Mk11 radars.
