Sensor specialist HENSOLDT is supplying two more of its TRML-4D high-performance radars to strengthen Ukraine’s air defence. As part of an order worth a two-digit million euro sum, the two radars will already be delivered in the next three months. At the turn of the year, HENSOLDT had already contracted four TRML-4D radars as part of the IRIS-T SLM air defence system for Ukraine. TRML-4D uses the latest Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar technology with multiple digitally shaped beams. It is capable of detecting, tracking and classifying various types of aerial targets, with a focus on small, fast and low-flying and/or manoeuvring cruise missiles and aircraft, as well as helicopters. It ensures the rapid detection and tracking of about 1,500 targets in a radius of up to 250 km.
The TRS-4D/TRML-4D Radar Family encompasses HENSOLDT’s latest members of C-Band (NATO G-Band) state-of-the-art naval and ground tactical radars. Based on the most advanced solid state Gallium Nitride Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) sensor technology with multiple digitally formed beams, TRML-4D is designed for near- to long-range ground to air detection and for weapon assignment. It is capable of detecting, tracking, and classifying various types of air targets, with a particular emphasis on small, fast, and low-flying and/or maneuvering cruise missiles and aircrafts and hovering helicopters.
Thomas Müller, CEO of HENSOLDT, said: “This contract conclusion is not least due to the excellent operational results that have been reported back from the deployment in the country, further strengthening Ukraine’s defence capability. The radars for Ukrainian air defence protect lives and we are proud to be able to deliver much needed equipment at short notice.”
