Gallium nitride technology and increased use of AI are among key features in the upgrade of the Danish Armed Forces’ radar systems in the coming years. The goal is to better handle tensions in the Arctic and the Baltic Sea.

The current radar systems are up to around 20 years old. With the new radars, the Danish Armed Forces will improve the quality and accuracy of the surveillance of Danish waters and airspace. In the future, it should be easier to monitor maritime traffic as well as detect and track e.g. modern types of aircraft with a smaller “footprint” in the airspace or even smaller objects such as drones.

Once the project is completed, waters and airspace throughout the Danish Realm will be monitored by 50 radars. Some will be new acquisitions, some will be technologically upgraded, while others will be replacements of existing radars.The process is already well underway. In autumn 2023, DALO purchased five new ground-based mobile radars of the Ground Master 200 MM/C type under a government-to-government agreement with the Netherlands.

The other two new FADRs will replace an S-723 radar on Bornholm and a RAT31 DL radar in Skagen. The plan is for all three FADRs to come from the same supplier and to be of the AESA in transmitters, which makes it possible to transmit at higher power while keeping each transmitter compact. In Norway, the air force has invested in the Lockheed Martin TPY-4 radar, which uses AESA and GaN technology, in 2022.
