Lockheed Martin has again selected EADS North America to supply its TRS-3D radar for the US Navy littoral combat ship.

The TRS-3D is a standard, naval multimode surface and air surveillance and target acquisition radar that is capable of detecting multiple surface and air targets simultaneously.

The lightweight, multifunction radar can integrate with various shipboard systems and C4ISR suites to provide surveillance, weapon fire control, and helicopter detection and guidance.

As per the terms of the contract, the company will deliver the first radar unit to Lockheed for installation in 2012.

The company had already delivered two TRS-3D radars to Lockheed for the first and third littoral combat ships, USS Freedom and Fort Worth.

The US Department of Defense had awarded a contract to Lockheed to construct up to ten littoral combat ships through 2015.
