AMS Defence supports the Australasian Navies and Coastguard Organisations with the supply, service and maintenance of Navigation Radar Systems and Electrical and Instrumentation Systems.
Radar and Navigational Systems
AMS Defence has partnered with Kelvin Hughes Ltd and is now the appointed Sales, Service and Support Agent in Australia and New Zealand. This relationship allows AMS Defence to support both legacy systems as well as gain access to the latest generation coherent pulse Doppler technology that is contained in the Solid State SharpEyeTM Radar Systems.
Launched in 2008, more than 25 navies now use SharpEye™ radars and displays, which deliver improvements in sub-clutter visibility by approximately 30dB, enabling targets with a low RCS (Radar Cross Section), typically 0.5m2, to be detected even in heavy rain and high sea states. Doppler processing enables clutter removal without picture degradation.
This combined with a host of other unique and special features in the radar sensor and display provides an unprecedented level of situational awareness to naval and coastguard vessels from a navigation radar.
AMS Defence and Alewijnse Marine Systems have joined forces to support the Australian Navy with the Damen Shipping SEA 1180 Offshore Patrol Vessel Project. AMS Defence as created a Joint Venture with Alewijnse Marine Systems that will see AMS Defence develop to be the leader in complex Maritime and Naval Electrical and Instrumentation design, installation and service.
