ANZAC Air Search Radar Replacement

SEA 1448 Phase 4B is replacing the SPS-49(V)8 Air Search Radar on the 8 Anzac class frigates with a modern phased array radar.

This project showcases Australian design and integration capability with the new Phased Array Radar technology designed by CEA Technologies in Canberra in conjunction with upgrades to combat systems performed by Saab Systems in South Australia and platform integration design by BAE Systems in Victoria.

Installation of this capability will coincide with the Anzac Midlife Capability Assurance Program (AMCAP).
