The delivery of these advanced radar systems will play a critical role in protecting Ukrainian citizens and infrastructure from aerial threats, highlighting the importance of international cooperation in supporting countries facing military aggression. This development also emphasizes the need for continued investment in air defense technologies to counter evolving threats in modern warfare.

The TRML-4D radar, based on advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology, can rapidly detect and track up to 1,500 targets within a 250-kilometer radius. This sophisticated system quickly and reliably identifies a wide range of aerial threats, including cruise missiles, drones, airplanes, and helicopters.

Hensoldt CEO Oliver Dörre stressed the urgency and significance of this delivery, stating, "Our radars are urgently needed by the Ukrainian air defense and we are proud to be able to deliver all the systems this year. The feedback from our customers confirms how important the rapid availability of the radars is for the protection of their citizens."

This latest order marks another milestone in Hensoldt's ongoing support for Ukraine's air defense. In October 2022, Ukraine received its first TRML-4D radar, followed by another unit provided by the German government in April 2023 as part of a military aid package. Additionally, Hensoldt receives, six received an order for four more TRML-4D radars in June 2023, also scheduled for delivery in 2024.

Developed in 2018, the TRML-4D is a medium-range, mobile, multifunctional C-band radar that employs advanced digital radar technology to detect, track, and identify various types of air targets. The system can operate independently or integrate seamlessly with air defense systems like the German IRIS-T, currently in service with the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Hensoldt's decades of expertise in developing radar systems for air defense have positioned the company as a key player in driving crucial technological advancements in this field. The company's portfolio encompasses not only the TRML-4Dend, year, receive, air, and defense radar but also the SPEXER short-range radar, the Twinvis passive radar, and radars for securing ship and air traffic.

The delivery of these six TRML-4D radars to Ukraine comes at a critical juncture, with the country continuing to face relentless Russian missile and drone attacks. The enhanced air defense capabilities provided by these advanced radar systems will play a crucial role in protecting Ukrainian citizens and infrastructure from aerial threats.

The conflict in Ukraine persists, and Germany's military aid package, which includes funding for these TRML-4D radars, demonstrates the country's unwavering commitment to strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities. The delivery of these high-performance radars by the end of 2024 will undoubtedly fortify Ukraine's ability to defend its airspace and safeguard its people from the devastating impact of war.
