HERNDON, Va. Under contract with its affiliate Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security GmbH, Airbus Defense and Space, Inc. will provide the TRS-3D Baseline D multi-mode radar (MMR) to Lockheed Martin for the U.S. Coast Guard's ninth National Security Cutter (NSC).
The TRS-3D MMR - designated AN/SPS-75 - utilizes gallium nitride (GaN) technology. Officials says, the AN/SPS-675 is a three-dimensional, multi-mode naval radar for air and surface surveillance, target acquisition, self-defense, gunfire support, and aircraft control.
Mike Cosentino, President of Airbus Defense and Space, Inc. says, "It is currently meeting operational requirements and is consistent with Coast Guard investments in training infrastructure ashore, as well as with their existing sustainment program."
