Lithuanian Armed Forces to Present the Newly-Acquired 3D Air Surveillance Radars


On Tuesday, 17 August the Air Space Surveillance and Control Command of the Lithuanian Armed Forces will host a ceremony designed to present the newly acquired  Surveilance and Target Acquisition Radar System (TRML - 3D).

The radar system has been purchased from the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) . The contract on radar purchase was signed in December 2001.


"The acquisition of the radar system is an important step in upgrading the Airspace Surveillance and Cntrol System of Lithuania, a member of NATO. The TRLM-3D system will largely contribute to a more effective protection of the national air space," said  Colonel Edvardas Mazeikis, the Commander of the Lithuanian Air Force.


Vice-Minister of National Defence Jonas Gecas, State Secretary of the Ministry Valdemaras Sarapinas, the Lithuanian Armed Forces Commander, Major General Valdas Tutkus, Commander of the Air Force, Colonel Mazeikis, EADS Vice-President for International Trade, Thomas NĆ¼tzel, are to take part in the presentation ceremony.


The Surveilance and Target Acquisition Radar System (TRML - 3D) is a self contained mobile 3D radar system with an integrated secondary radar system and operator workstations contained in one vehicle. The system was created to be rapidly deployable and highly mobile for fast camp and decampment.

The TRML – 3D radar is a fully-coherent multi-mode phased array suveillance and target acuisition radar system designed for short and medium range detection and air defence. The 3D radar is capable of detecting, tracking, and classifying various types of targets with a particular emphasis on small, fast and low-flying aircraft, missiles and hovering helicopters. It can be deployed as a stand-alone radar or can be integrated into air defence networks in coordination with other radars and command control systems.

The radar has a range of 200km and each stationary unit can communicate with two neighbouring radars.
