ARTISAN radar in anacohic chamber.
ARTISAN, the most sophisticated radar system ever developed, has been successfully installed on the Royal Navy’s HMS Iron Duke by BAE Systems specialists. The new radar is able to detect something as small as a tennis ball travelling at three times the speed of sound, more than 25km away.
Developed by BAE Systems, the ARTISAN medium range 3D surveillance radar sets new standards in surveillance and tracking accuracy and is five times more efficient than any other radar currently used by the fleet. HMS Iron Duke is the first ship in the class to receive the new radar.
