A follow-on order for the SharpEye Doppler submarine radar system from Kelvin Hughes has been placed by Pakistan, and the system will be delivered to the country in 2019, the company announced on 21 November.
Kelvin Hughes first announced in February 2017 that it has secured a first order for the same radar system from the Pakistan Navy. The acquisitions are being made as part of a mid-life upgrade programme for the service’s Khalid-class (Agosta 90B) submarines. The first radar set is currently scheduled for delivery in 2018.
