Thales to Install Naval Radars for Dutch Military

Thales logoThales Group has signed a contract with Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding to supply and install surveillance radars for the Netherlands’ Joint Support Ship program.

Thales will install its Scout Mk3 sensor technology on a vessel Damen Schelde is building for the Dutch defense materiel organization, Thales said Friday.

Netherlands’ military is slated to conduct initial sea trials of its JSS with the radar system.

Scout uses two-dimensional Doppler arrays to identify and detect small targets on the high seas or those situated near larger objects, Thales says.

The Mk3 platform is designed to evade detection by intercept devices and can also integrate with helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.
