HENDSOLDT and NDMA, the defence procurement authority of the Norwegian Armed Forces, have signed a €20 million contract covering the acquisition of radar systems and identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) systems for naval platforms.

Under this contract, HENSOLDT will first remove the TRS-3D radars and MSSR 2000 I IFF systems currently fitted on the Norwegian Coast Guard’s three Nordkapp-class offshore patrol vessels. HENSOLDT will then take these systems it removed, modernise them with the latest technologies and integrate them to the Arctic Coast Guard Vessels currently under construction as part of the same user’s P6615 Programme. The company will start deliveries within 2021, and the contract also includes an option for the modernisation of TRS-3D and IFF systems on the Norwegian Coast Guard’s NoGCV Svalbard vessels.

Sharing his remarks on this latest development, Thomas Müller, CEO of HENSOLDT, said: “I am proud that our TRS-3D naval radar has proven itself in service with the Norwegian Coast Guard, so that the customer considered its upgraded version as superior to other products.”

The TRS-3D is a three-dimensional and multi-purpose naval and air surveillance radar that can track targets automatically and provide navigation information to helicopters. The MSSR 2000 I IFF system within the radar allows for identification-friend-or-foe, and it possesses the Mod 5/S technology that is mandatory for joint NATO operations. There are presently over 50 TRS-3D radars serving on-board various classes of different vessels – such as frigates, corvettes and patrol boats – belonging to the United States, Germany and Finland.
