HENSOLDT, a provider of sensor solutions, will equip the US Coast Guard’s “Legend” class National Security Cutter (NSC) with its TRS-3D multi-mode naval radar.
The US Coast Guard recently awarded HENSOLDT a follow-on contract worth around $10 million to supply another radar in its latest “Baseline D” version to be installed at the Coast Guard training centre (TRACEN) in Petaluma, California.
HENSOLDT has so far supplied 12 radars to the US Coast Guard’s NSC program. The TRS-3D Baseline D, also known as AN/SPS-75 in the US, uses gallium nitride (GaN) and solid-state emitter technology to provide traditional TRS-3D performance with improved reliability and potential for future development. HENSOLDT’s TRS-3D radars have been installed on every NSC since the program’s inception.
The TRS-3D is a three-dimensional, multi-mode naval radar that automatically detects and tracks air and sea targets, reducing crew workload requirements. It is used for air and surface surveillance, target acquisition, self-defence, gunfire support and aircraft control.
HENSOLDT has extensive experience in radar and actively drives the development of key technologies in this field. The company’s portfolio includes not only naval and ground-based air defence radars but also fighter radars, ground surveillance, and space radars.
