TAUFKIRCHEN, Germany. Sensor company Hensoldt is sending four air defense radars to Ukraine to support its war effort against Russia, the company announced in a statement.
The TRML-4D radars will be part of Diehl Defence's IRIS-T SLM air defense system. One of the radars has already been delivered, and the remaining three will be delivered over the next few months, the statement reads.
The TRML-4D radar uses active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar technology along with multiple digitally shaped beams. The radar is capable of "detecting, tracking and classifying various types of aerial targets, with a focus on small, fast and low-flying and/or maneuvering cruise missiles and aircraft, as well as hovering helicopters," the company says, claiming it can track 1,500 targets at a radius of up to 250 kilometers.
Hensoldt currently supplies radars to German Navy frigates and corvettes, as well as for airspace surveillance for approach control at airfields.
