The Royal Navy’s new Type 26 frigates will be fitted with Terma’s SCANTER radars and Raytheon Anschütz naval radar software whose joint solution recently obtained the International Maritime Organization certificate.

The Terma-Raytheon solution will help save space, cost, and training efforts because it enables both high resolution 360° navigation and use as situation awareness radar.

In 2015, Terma was selected by Raytheon Anschütz to supply the SCANTER radars of the type 6000 for the Royal Navy’s new Type 26 Global Combat Ships. Raytheon Anschütz is selected by BAE Systems to provide the Integrated Navigation and Bridge System (INBS) including radar sensors.

Terma supplies two SCANTER 6000 radars for each vessel including trackers and 12 feet compact antennas plus a land-based test site.

Raytheon Anschütz is under contract to deliver the Integrated Bridge and Navigation System for the first three ships, including customer-specific design and development, a land-based integration facility, and a wide range of services up to completion of sea trials.

Besides Type 26, Terma’s SCANTER 6000 naval surveillance radar is installed on French Navy’s Charles De Gaulle Carrier and L’Adroit vessel, US Navy’s Stiletto vessel, and on a variety of Danish Navy vessels. It is also supplied to the navies of Germany and UAE and for new OPV programs as well as update programs.
