    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.
