Raytheon & HENSOLDT to Provide Integrated Air Surveillance Radars to Two European Customers

Leading air traffic radar providers, Raytheon and HENSOLDT, have partnered to provide integrated air surveillance radars to two European customers. One is the Royal Netherlands Air Force, which will receive one system that will provide both advanced air traffic control and wind-farm interference mitigation at De Kooy airfield. The other customer is Deutsche Flugsicherung, the German air navigation service provider, which will receive three systems to replace aging radars as part of the country's airspace modernization efforts. 

The radars will combine HENSOLDT's next-generation primary airport surveillance radar, the ASR-NG and Raytheon's Mode S monopulse secondary surveillance radar, the Condor Mk 3. HENSOLDT's multibeam 3D S-band solid-state approach control primary surveillance radar combines fully digital Doppler detection and tracking solution with highly flexible and self-learning clutter and site optimization capabilities. Evolved from the Condor Mk 2, Raytheon's Mk 3 uses enhanced features such as a higher duty cycle transmitter, GaN technology, automatic adaptive power control and built-in ADS-B to affordably deliver the highest performance.

Raytheon provides air traffic management solutions to over 60 percent of the world's airspace. Together, HENSOLDT and Raytheon bring to market over a century of combined experience in global air traffic control solutions.
