HENSOLDT UK announced the supply of Kelvin Hughes Mk11 X Band SharpEye navigation radars to two Polish Navy Kormoran II-class minehunters. ORP Albatros and ORP Mewa were built by Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. shipyard 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.
Head of Sales, Maritime Surveillance Adrian Pilbeam 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.
