The new Type 31 frigates for the Royal Navy will be fitted with the Thales NS110 surveillance radar.

The radar passed its factory acceptance test at the end of February, witnessed by a delegation of customers including Babcock International and the Ministry of Defence. This radar will be used initially for integration testing before being installed on-board the Type 31.

“The Type 31 program is very important to Thales and we are proud to play such a pivotal role in it. This Factory Acceptance Test demonstrates our commitment to delivery in accordance with specification,” said Gerben Edelijn, Vice-President Thales Above Water Systems.

“The success of this milestone is very important to the T31 enterprise. We’re proud to be part of this national endeavour and to be providing mission critical systems to our customers,” said Alex Cresswell, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, Thales in the UK.
