Seaspray 5000E


The Seaspray 5000E is an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) multi-mode surveillance radar


Seaspray 5000E


AgustaWestland, February 01, 2014 - The Seaspray 5000E Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) multi-mode surveillance radar provides an unrivalled surveillance capability as the primary sensor on airborne assets to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Seaspray AESA radars are in operational service globally. Seaspray 5000E is the lightest member of the family, which also comprises the Seaspray 7000E and Seaspray 7500E who’s Customers include the UK Royal Navy and the United States Coast Guard.

Seaspray radars have been delivering a high performance surveillance capability to armed forces and paramilitary users for over 40 years.

Seaspray 5000E employs the Seaspray AESA family common processor, coupled with a compact state-of-the-art AESA antenna to deliver a leading edge capability covering air-to-surface and air-to-air environments. Seaspray 5000E is installed in both fixed wing and rotary wing platforms, with the lightweight radar ideally suited to the needs of manned and unmanned operations.

Seaspray 5000E’s excellent performance and reliability
stems from its AESA architecture and use of digital
waveforms to optimise performance in all modes.

Seaspray 5000E combines mechanical scanning of the
antenna with electronic scanning of the radar beam to
provide a cost-effective radar system with a wide range of
capabilities from long range search to exceptional small
target detection.

Comprising just two air cooled Line Replaceable Units (LRU),
which can be remotely connected to ease installation issues,
Seaspray 5000E is a highly reliable lightweight surveillance
radar that can be easily integrated with other mission
sensors and avionics using industry standard interfaces.

Characteristics:

- Frequency: X Band
- Scan coverage: Installation dependant
- Maximum range: 200 NM
- Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF): ~2,000 hours
- Cooling: Unconditioned air
- Weight (Installation dependent): 48 kgs (Antenna and Processor LRUs)
- Interfaces: Standard: Ethernet, RS422, RS232. Others available on request
- Video: outputs Multiple options for Mission System and cockpit display compatibility

Dimensions (approx)

- Processor: 500x260x210mm
- Antenna: 430x280x140mm
