The two equipped vessels, ORP Albatros and ORP Mewa, were built by Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. in Gdańsk, Poland. Installed in conjunction with an OSI Maritime Systems integrated navigation bridge system, the radar will be tasked with navigation and surface surveillance functionality, providing the Polish Navy with solid state radar sensors to ensure safety of navigation whilst providing advanced small target search capability. This capability contributes to ship safety of navigation and enhances the performance in the operational tasks.
Adrian Pilbeam, Head of Sales Maritime Surveillance commented: “HENSOLDT UK are pleased to supply the Polish Navy with their first SharpEye radars to assist in the demanding operational tasks of a minehunter. This further extends a longstanding relationship for the supply of radar sensors to OSI Maritime Systems for integration into their bridge systems.”
The Polish navy now joins more than 30 navies worldwide using Kelvin Hughes SharpEye radar sensors. Kelvin Hughes Mk11 SharpEye radar technology meets the detection challenges of navies, coastguards and border agencies by providing high performance in all conditions as well as the flexibility to be optimised for specific detection needs.Starting with TRS-3D in the beginning of the 1990s, the multiple combat proven TRS naval radar system has continuously been improved over the years as technology evolved.
