High Frequency Surface Wave Radar
Raytheon's High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) is designed to provide surveillance of ship traffic over the 200 nautical miles of a country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) to track vessel patterns and potentially identify illegal fishing vessels. HFSWR is an unmanned shore-based radar system that detects vessels and is designed for signal transmission, target detection, tracking, interference suppression and common frequency operation.
Cost-effective: This radar system minimizes the need for costly patrols over large expanses of marine protected areas and EEZs. This platform is particularly attractive for nations that have limited resources and a large EEZ, making manned patrols an expensive investment. After being triggered by the radar system, patrols can be sent out only when necessary.
