SMART-L is a 3D multibeam radar designed to provide long-range air & surface surveillance and target designation.
Operating in L-band, SMART-L provides a very long-range coverage (400 km radius) as well as 70° of elevation. State-of-the-art technology, combined with refined signal processing, SMART-L guarantees excellent performance, especially against stealthy targets in a littoral environment. SMART-L's high sensitivity allows for the early detection and tracking of very small aircraft and missiles.
Recent tests with SMART-L equipped with the recently developed Extended Long Range module were highly successful. Thanks to the ELR module, SMART-L's already impressive range can be substantially increased.
SMART-L is operational on the Netherlands' and German air defence frigates, the Korean Landing Platform Dock and is under contract for the Danish Navy's Patrol Ships. SMART-L's derivative, S1850M, is currently being installed on the Royal Navy's Type 45 vessels and the French and Italian Horizon class destroyers and is under contract for the new British Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers.
