DCNS & TERMA combine their expertise to multiply the operational capabilities of L'Adroit OPV
 
Designed and built by DCNS in less than 24 months, if the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit is a major industrial and technological achievement, Terma also made a commitment to deliver an affordable but highly capable radar package to DCNS within a very short timeframe.

As a selected partner for the programme, the company installed its surveillance radars on board L’Adroit. From that time, the two SCANTER systems are used in operational conditions, providing the ship with a comprehensive situational awareness capability.

The SCANTER radars, sharing a single 10 ft high gain antenna mounted inside the single integrated mast, deliver complementary capabilities to ensure gapless surface and air coverage:

The TWT-based SCANTER 4102 provides excellent medium range surveillance in both the air and surface channels, with the capability to track large aircraft at ranges out to 80-90 nautical miles;
while the solid-state SCANTER 6002 performs near, low air and surface surveillance to support navigation, helicopter control, search and rescue, or surface vessel interdiction.

Developed by DCNS, the single integrated mast equipped by the two radars is one of the most significant innovations of the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit. Its see-through composite cone provides the sensors with an optimal visibility and multiplies the ship‘s operational capabilities.

Terma’s preferred position on board L’Adroit reflects the continuing strong relationship between the company and DCNS, which goes back to the supply of the SCANTER 2001 radar for the Project Delta export frigate programme. SCANTER 2001 has also been specified for the new Aquitaine class FREMM multi-mission frigates being built by DCNS for the French Navy.
