The system, supplied by the “Systems House” Defence and Communications Systems, is a self contained mobile 3D radar with an integrated secondary radar system and operator workstations contained in one vehicle. It is fully interoperable with other surveillance radars and operation centres while remaining mobile and autonomous for out-of-area operations.
The country is spending EUR 20 million ($23.2 million at current exchange) on two EADS’ TRML-3D air defense radars, with delivery slated for the beginning of 2008. The contract also includes options for eight more systems, to be decided next year. (photo : Militaryphotos)
The radars are to be supplied by EADS’ Sensors, Avionics and Electronic Warfare House, Defence Electronics.
A 4-axle cross-country vehicle enables TRML-3D to be highly mobile, or be removed from the vehicle altogether. The hydraulically-operated legs enable loading and unloading of the shelter onto the vehicle without a crane using only two operators.
