Sea Fire is operating in the S-Band new family of software-controlled 3D multifunction radars equipped with four fixed active antenna panels (AESA). It was designed to conduct ship self-defense and extended air defense missions. Its 360-degree coverage can track 800 targets simultaneously at a range of up to 500 kilometers in the air and 80 kilometers on the surface. Sea Fire is capable of performing missile fire control and guidance as well as target detection, identification, and tracking.
Sea Fire is a modular radar system that will be available in several versions and with various antenna sizes to match platform architectures and mission types. Each antenna array is independent: the four fixed panels can be located at different points on the vessel. The active phased arrays are scalable and consist of groups with 8 × 8 elements each.
