Cassidian equips finish border guard vessel with TRS-3D radar

UNTERSCHLEISSHEIM, Germany, 11 Aug. 2012. Cassidian, the defence and security division of EADS, will equip the new offshore patrol vessel of the Finnish Border Guard with its TRS-3D naval radar. The STX Shipyard in Rauma/Finland has awarded Cassidian a contract to deliver the radar by mid-2013 for integration into the new ship.

The radar is intended to provide a reliable and comprehensive situation picture as well as safe helicopter guidance and search-and-rescue (SAR) missions under the extreme environmental conditions of the Finnish littoral waters. TRS-3D is a 3-dimensional multimode naval radar for air and sea surveillance. It 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.

TRS-3D is in service with the "Squadron 2000" patrol vessels and the "Hämeenma"-class ships of the Finnish Navy. With more than 60 radars operated by navies and coast guards worldwide, TRS-3D is widely used in its class. Among the ships equipped are 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.
