    Royal Navy, January 16, 2017 - Minister for Defence Procurement Harriett Baldwin has announced a £269 million deal for a new cutting-edge helicopter-borne surveillance system designed to protect Royal Navy ships, including the new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers.

    The deal with Lockheed Martin will see the start of manufacturing on the new Crowsnest system.

    It will act as the eyes and ears for the Royal Navy’s ships, providing long range air, maritime and land detection and tracking capability.

    Minister for Defence Procurement Harriett Baldwin said: “Crowsnest will provide a vital intelligence, surveillance and tracking system for our new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, capable of detecting any potential threats at sea.

    The MOD and Lockheed Martin UK, as the prime contractor for Crowsnest, have selected Thales as the chosen bidder to provide the radar and mission system at the heart of the Crowsnest capability.

    The Crowsnest project will act as the Royal Navy’s eyes and ears for its next generation carriers, giving long-range air, maritime and land detection, as well as the capability to track potential threats. Crowsnest will also be able to support wider fleet and land operations, replacing the Sea King Mk 7 Airborne Surveillance and Control capability, which has been operational since 1982.



    The Merlin Crowsnest will replace the Sea King ASaC.7
