BRUSSELS, Belgium. Terma has announced that the company's SCANTER 6000 radar has been selected for the Belgian/Netherlands replacement MCMV program led by the Belgium Naval & Robotics consortium, composed of Naval Group and ECA Group.
In this frame, mid-January Terma was contracted by the French shipbuilder Kership - a joint venture between Naval Group and Piriou - to supply 12 units of the SCANTER 6000 naval radar for the MCM vessels. Terma will deliver the first unit in 2022 and the deliveries will continue for the following eight years.
According to the company, the SCANTER 6000 is a coherent X-band 2D solid state radar developed by Terma to address market requirements for improved surface and low airspace situational awareness in all-weather and sea conditions. The radar is designed to provide capabilities for advanced navigation, air surveillance including helicopter control and surface surveillance with tracking of small targets like jet-skies or autonomous surface vessels out to the horizon.
The SCANTER 6000 naval surveillance radar is in delivery to the Royal Navy’s new Type-26 Global Combat Ships and T31 Frigates. The radar is currently in service on most French Navy’s major warships including the Charles De Gaulle aircraft carrier and on the Danish Navy’s Frigates of the Iver Huitfeldt class.
