The Thales Air Systems SEA FIRE active electronically scanned array S-band 3D naval multifunction radar system will equip the five FTI (Frégate de Taille Intermédiaire) 4000t frigates to be purchased by French Ministry of Defence armament procurement agency, the DGA (Direction Générale de l´Armement) to progressively replace the La Fayette-class frigates currently fielded by the French Navy (Marine Nationale).

The SEA FIRE radar is capable of performing target detection, identification and tracking as well as fire control and guidance of current and future active radar homing missiles

With the combination of its four fully solid state active fixed arrays with GaN solid state T/R modules in a modular architecture, each offering higher power, beam steering agility and 90° coverage, the radar system will provide detection and tracking performance with continuous 360° coverage in azimuth and 90°coverage in elevation.
