Kelvin Hughes announced that it is supplying its SharpEye navigation radar for the Republic of Singapore Navy's Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV) programme.

The lead ship of the fleet, Independence, was delivered in May of this year equipped with two I-Band (X-band) SharpEye systems. A further seven vessels will be similarly equipped with the same I-Band SharpEye systems, the company said in a statement Monday.

These eight new LMVs will replace the Singapore Navy’s current fleet of Fearless-class patrol vessels and is configurable to undertake a wide spectrum of operations.

SharpEye does not require a magnetron and transmits a low power, patented pulse sequence. Doppler processing adds another dimension to the analysis of the radar returns and increases the probability of detection of targets. Through a series of electronic filters, SharpEye is able to distinguish between targets of interest and clutter caused by adverse weather conditions. Customisable waveforms can be configured for specific threats and to track specific targets, such as helicopters.
