Terma Singapore has successfully completed a contract signing with Saab Australia to provide their SCANTER 6002 radar system for the Royal Australian Navy’s SEA 1180 Offshore Patrol Vessels. 

Under the contract, Terma will deliver the SCANTER 6002 radar system for all 12 OPVs over a 10-year period. SEA 1180 will replace and improve upon the capability provided by the 13 Armidale Class patrol boats.

These OPVs will undertake constabulary missions and the OPV will be the primary RAN asset for maritime patrol and response duties.

The SCANTER 6002 is a combined air and surface surveillance radar providing unique capabilities for advanced navigation, surveillance and helicopter control.

On the OPV, the SCANTER 6002 radar is configured with its compact 12 feet antenna and is integrated with the Saab Australia Situational Awareness System. The SCANTER 6002 radar enables the operator to detect surface and short-range air contacts and provides the capability to track and control air vehicles operating in proximity to the OPV.

The SCANTER 6002 radar has become a preferred choice for both navigation and surveillance purposes by a large number of navies and coastguards around the world, largely thanks to its unique surface surveillance capability with superior small target detection and target separation in bad weather conditions.

The SCANTER naval radar systems comply with the justification and operational requirements on board naval vessels to:  

  • Provide back-up to primary surveillance radar system;
  • Assist on-board tactical task functions;
  • Helicopter landing control;
  • Perform sea and short-range air surveillance with automatic target tracking;
  • Provide versatile interface capability for C-Flex and other on-board systems; and
  • Provide safe navigation for year-round operation.

Saab Australia is supplying its EOS 500 electro-optical fire-control director, and will also integrate the SCANTER 6002 with its 9LV-based Situational Awareness System across all 12 boats in the program.
