HENSOLDT UK to Supply Coastal Surveillance Radar to Lithuania

The Lithuanian State Border Guard Service (SBGS) has selected variants of HENSOLDT's SBS-900 X-band SharpEye long range coastal surveillance radar to ensure the safe management and monitoring of vessels in the coastal waters of Lithuania.

HENSOLDT UK’s shore-based radars were specifically developed to meet the stringent operational requirements of port, harbour and river traffic operators as well as government agencies responsible for the protection of coastal and littoral zones.

Working with the local integrator, Telekonta, the mast mounted SBS-900 was selected to meet the requirements of the Lithuanian SBGS for detection of small targets at long ranges. This is in line with IALA Guideline No. 1111 (May 2015) for advanced level detection.

The decision by the Lithuanian SBGS to select the SBS-900 demonstrates the confidence they have in the complete integrated radar solution that HENSOLDT UK and Telekonta provided. The advantage of the HENSOLDT UK solution is that the coastal radar does not require an air-conditioned enclosure at the top of the mast. Compared to competitor solutions, the SBS-900 thus comes at reduced system integration and infrastructure costs.

The SBS-900 radars are a significant step to enhance the coastal surveillance system for the SBGS. With high performance and low through life costs, they are pleased to work with HENSOLDT UK and the Lithuanian SBGS on such an important project.
