Hensoldt press release
The Mk 5 radar is the first open array 80W SharpEye navigation radar especially aimed at the smaller military vessels that require full capability with limited space availability.
“SharpEye provides the user with the most capable radar in its class that allows exceptional performance against small targets in clutter with minimal user adjustment”, says Russell Gould, Managing Director of HENSOLDT UK, formerly Kelvin Hughes. “Kelvin Hughes SharpEye radars have been fitted to more than 30 leading naval and Coast Guard services worldwide, and the Mk 5 makes this technology available to a wider range of naval and Coast Guard vessels.”
SharpEye is a state-of-the-art coherent, pulse Doppler X Band radar for navigation and situational awareness. It translates world-class radar technology such as Gallium Nitride (GaN) power transistor technology into superior detection performance of small targets in heavy clutter, thus improving mission success and survivability of military and Coast Guard vessels.
