Netherlands Navy Orders 8 Thales Radars

The Royal Netherlands Navy placed an order for eight radars with Thales Group on Thursday.

The first NS100 surveillance radar will update the radar currently fitted on HNLMS Rotterdam Landing Platform Dock (LPD), the company said in a release.

The NS100 4D active electronically scanned array (AESA) dual-axis multi-beam sensor enables simultaneous detection of a multiple targets in a single operational mode. With the additional forward and backward scanning technology, situational awareness is improved.

The contract also specifies delivery of seven more Scout Mk3 surveillance radars. Two of them will be installed each on HNLMS Johan de Witt and on the Combat Support Ship (CSS) presently being built for the Navy. The CSS will also receive a Thales IFF system.

Five more Scout Mk3 radars will be supplied for the M-class frigates operated by the RNLN and the Belgian Naval Component and for spares and training purposes. This contract raises the number of Scout Mk3 radars under contract to 15.
