Quadome is a dual-mode, multi-mission surveillance radar for naval air- and surface surveillance, providing naval forces and maritime security authorities with unprecedented situational awareness and extremely short reaction times.

It features state-of-the-art technology and is software-defined, thus being a future-proof solution with an extended operational lifetime. Quadome builds on the reputation and track record of HENSOLDT’s naval tactical radar family, which has been very successful and has sold over 100 units over a 25-year timespan.

Equipped with the latest technology, Quadome provides rapid response and high precision, at an excellent price-performance ratio.

Quadome is aimed at the global market for tactical naval radar systems, mainly targeting offshore patrol vessels (OPVs), corvettes, light frigates and support vessels.

Because of its compact size, relatively low mass and excellent price-performance ratio, the Quadome radar brings 3D air surveillance and air defence capabilities to vessels that may otherwise only been fitted with 2D target detection capability.

Clients will have the benefit of lower life-cycle costs, reduced user-effort due to lower workloads, training and skills and comprehensive modern support concepts.

The lifespan of the product is also significantly extended with new-generation, future-proof technology that offers the ability to add new features as new threats emerge, using the software-defined architecture.
