Cost effective, high performance and in-service medium-range surveillance naval radar that offers enhanced 2D surveillance for Offshore Patrol and support vessels.
AWS-10 provides superior 2D radar coverage against air and surface targets out to 180km (100Nm). Its pedigree is from the T1045 Sampson radar on the Royal Navy's Type 45 Destroyers and the T997 Artisan radar on Type 23 Frigates, the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers and Type 26 Frigates. When compared with its competitors, AWS-10 provides significantly improved performance at a lower cost.
The AWS-10 system has been extremely reliable; there hasn’t been a single failure during its time on board RFA Argus.

Lightweight and easily installed, AWS-10 requires a single cabinet to house the below-decks equipment and is easily and swiftly integrated with any modern missile or Combat Management System. It provides high performance even in the most demanding operating conditions and has excellent availability, reliability and maintainability. AWS-10 is already in use on the Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship Argus.
