STIR 1.2 (STING) is a multi-purpose, multi-sensor naval fire control tracking system for missiles and guns.
STIR 1.2 supports missile and gun fire control, performs kill assessment and makes a valuable contribution to classification and identification of threats. For air target engagement the STIR 1.2 is applied for assignment of missiles like RAM, VL MICA and ESSM and as gun fire solution for OTOMelara 76mm and the AK176.
STIR 1.2 can also track surface targets; obtained track data can be used for the SSM, as well as for surface target engagements with the available guns. STIR 1.2's EO package enables for observation and tracking under all conditions.
In addition, the system can be used as a surveillance sensor, even under radar silence conditions.
STIR 1.2 overcomes the tracking problems often associated with low-flying missiles. By applying dual radar bands (I- and K-band), and complemented by EO sensors, STIR 1.2 realizes extremely high track continuity, even in littoral, high-clutter and jamming scenarios.
The EO sensor suite supports long range search, identification and classification of asymmetric threats as piracy and insurgency.
