Naval Radars Set to Work Onboard Australia’s Anzac Frigate

Anschütz has reached a milestone in their supply of naval navigation radars for the Australian Anzac class frigates modernisation programme, as they have been successfully set to work.

The radar systems combine transceivers from Terma and Naval Radar NX applications from Anschütz on ruggedised consoles.

“We are pleased to have established a trusted and successful relationship with our Australian partners and the Royal Australian Navy with the successful setting-to-work”, said Michael DePlonty, Lead System Engineer for the ANZAC naval radar programme at Anschütz.

“Our customers are impressed by the benefits our naval radars offer in terms of performance and tactical functions.”

In addition to supplying the radar systems, Anschütz’s services also includes customised development, system integration, documentation and training.

“The training was well received,” said Dave Hardy of BAE Systems Australia, who is the contractor for radar systems in the ANZAC-class modernisation programme.

“Trainees also commented they thought the Anschütz console was easier to navigate with a more logical setup over other consoles they had experienced.”

Anschütz is supplying the systems to a total of eight ANZAC-class frigates and additional land-based test facilities. As a local partner, the Australian company JEDS will conduct maintenance trainings for and do maintenance on the ANZAC naval radar systems.
