HENSOLDT UK has been providing the world’s navies with navigation radars for over 70 years. With the patented Kelvin Hughes SharpEye Technology, HENSOLDT UK pioneered the use of coherent pulse Doppler solid state technology in a low weight sensor configuration in 2006, allowing the standard navigation radar to be used for multiple tasks at the same time.
All HENSOLDT UK solid state radars contain SharpEye technology which delivers superior radar performance and reliability. SharpEye, the world’s first affordable navigation and surface search pulse Doppler radar sensor, offers high reliability, low cost of ownership and improved detection ranges, especially small targets in clutter.
HENSOLDT UK’s Kelvin Hughes SharpEye submarine radar systems are specifically designed for submarines. Utilising the same technology as SharpEye surface ship radars, they are available in downmast hull penetrating and upmast non hull-penetrating compact radar configurations.
Offering simplicity, HENSOLDT UK’s Kelvin Hughes Integrated Naval Bridge Systems (INBS) are designed to put the navigators at the centre. Access to all the critical information – including radar, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), and conning – essential for a safe journey is available, seamlessly integrated with all other systems aboard the vessel.
