Belgian/Dutch MCMV Programme Selects Terma SCANTER 6000 Radar

‘You Don’t Know What You Don’t See’

With construction of the first mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV) for the Belgian and Dutch navies starting this year, Terma has been awarded a contract for 12 SCANTER 6000 naval radar systems, the company announced on 26 February.

Specifically designed to close the gap between standard marine navigation radars and more expensive military surveillance solutions, the SCANTER 6000 is a coherent X-band 2D solid state radar developed to address market requirements for improved surface and low airspace situational awareness in all weather and sea conditions. It provides unique capabilities for advanced navigation, air surveillance (including helicopter control), and surface surveillance, tracking small targets like jet-skies or autonomous surface vessels out to the horizon.

The high-resolution SCANTER 6000 radars will enable the [Belgian and Dutch] MCMV’s to detect and track small targets – from the horizon up to the ship itself – on the surface and in low-level air space in all weather conditions,” explained Terma’s Sales Director, Lars Veis Laursen.

Terma will deliver the first unit in 2022 and the deliveries will continue for the following eight years.
