Hensoldt’s TRS-3D multi-mode naval radar for USCG’s cutters

Sensor solutions provider Hensoldt has been contracted to equip the US Coast Guard’s Legend-class National Security Cutter (NSC) with its TRS-3D multi-mode naval radar. 


The US Coast Guard awarded Hensoldt a follow-on contract worth approximately 10 Mio. $ to deliver a further radar in its latest ‘Baseline D’ version to be installed at the Coast Guard training center (TRACEN), Petaluma/CA. Up to now, the company has delivered 12 radars to the US Coast Guard’s NSC program.

The TRS-3D Baseline D, with the US designation AN/SPS-75, utilizes gallium nitride (GaN) and solid-state emitter technology to deliver traditional TRS-3D robust performance.

 HENSOLDT’s TRS-3D radars have been aboard every NSC since the program’s inception.

TRS-3D is a three-dimensional, multi-mode naval radar for air and surface surveillance, target acquisition, self-defense, gunfire support and aircraft control. It automatically detects and tracks all types of air and sea targets, alleviating crew workload requirements.

“With more than 50 radars in service with Coast Guards and Navies worldwide, our TRS-3D naval radar has proven itself,” Hensoldt CEO Thomas Müller stated.
