Radars and Sensors

   The main fire Control Radar is the Israeli made MF STAR which can track search and Guide the Ship and Their Weapons.It's a S band AESA radar.The radar employs multi-beam and pulse Doppler techniques as-well-as robust Electronic counter-countermeasures techniques to extract low radar cross-section targets from complex clutter and jamming environments.

    The MF STAR capable of Search and Track Hunderds of Tracks at very fast Refreshing thanks to 4 Side view of the Radar. The Radar Come with ECCM-Electronic Counter Counter Measure to detect less RCS Stealth warships and Jamming Sources.the MF STAR is operates as same as how the American Ageis system Works.

It can have some other Radars and Tracking systems and EW suits


     The Hull mounted SONAR is designed by Indigenous whose name Known as HUMSA-NG bow sonar which is Designed by BEL.Which is used for detect Submarines Operating underwater. There is another Towed Array Sonar is also embedded by the Ship's Navigation by Towing SONAR's into wider Area to Improve the ASW quality of the Ship.
