  • Supports electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) with side lobe blanking and cancellation
  • High accuracy three-dimensional (3D) information for all targets
  • Target classification
  • Target identification to weapons systems
  • Fast reaction time




The SG1X will support Maritime Domain Awareness and Sea Denial and Control with the ability to detect, identify, classify, and track air and surface threats, and can operate independently or be integrated to share information with on board combat management systems offering sensor cooperation and data fusion flexibility.
