CWS-2 (abbr. of Combined surface and air Warning Ship-borne) was two-dimensional, operating in S-Band surface surveillance and air surveillance radar.
The radar was used on the Danish frigates of the “Peder Skram” class in the early 1970s. It remained operational until the 1990s. The frigate “Peder Skram” can be seen in the Copenhagen Naval Museum as a museum ship with its two radars CWS-2 and CWS-3.
