EADS Defence & Security has delivered the second TRS-3D naval surveillance radar to Lockheed Martin, a prime contractor for the U.S. Navy Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) programme. The radar is due to be integrated on the third vessel named LCS 3 USS Fort Worth being built by Marinette Marine Corporation (part of Fincantieri-Cantieri Navali SpA) and to be delivered to the U.S. Navy in 2012.

The first radar has been in successful operation for a year-and-a-half onboard 3040 Tonnes LCS 1 USS Freedom vessel.

TRS-3D is a 3D multimode naval radar for surveillance, self-defense, gunfire support, and helicopter control. It is used for automatically locating and tracking all types of air and sea targets.
