Smart-S Mk2 is the continuous evolution of Thales proven 3D multi-beam radar family. This radar operates in E/F-band (or S-band) and is optimised for surveillance of 250 km with 70° elevation coverage, target designation and undisturbed air and surface target tracking in littoral environments.
Smart-S Mk2 matches the full performance envelope of modern surface-to-air missiles, with direct assignment of VL-MICA, Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) and is suitable as main air and surface surveillance radar for corvettes, frigates and amphibious ships.
The radar offers two main modes, a special helicopter/UAV guidance capability and 3 surface fire control channels.
With multiple stacked beams vertical, it simultaneously covers the full elevation volume between 0° and 70°. Azimuth is scanned with the stacked beams, with two rotation speeds.
By design, it offers ease of installation, maintenance and a high reliability. Smart-S Mk2 is the optimal sensor for a powerful weapon & sensor suite for littoral operations as is recognized by its large installed user group.
