The Hyundai shipyard stretches over four kilometers along the coast of Mipo Bay in Ulsan, Korea. The Shipbuilding Division is capable of building all types of ships to meet various demands from its clients. It has ten large-scale drydocks with nine huge 'Goliath Cranes'. Since the shipyard's groundbreaking in 1972, HHI's Shipbuilding Division has garnered many awards and set many records within the shipbuilding industry.

Press release from Kelvin Hughes. Reproduced in its entirety.

SHARPEYE™ RADAR SYSTEM FOR PHILIPPINE NAVY FAP
23 Oct 2017

https://www.kelvinhughes.com/news/300-sharpeye-radar-system-for-philippine-navy-fap

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have contracted Kelvin Hughes to supply I Band and E/F Band SharpEye™ radars.

The Philippine Navy Frigate Acquisition Project (FAP) was awarded to HHI in October 2016 to build two 2,600 ton frigates for hand over starting in 2020. Kelvin Hughes has announced it is to supply HHI two SharpEye™ navigation radars along with multifunction bridge radar displays for the Philippine Navy FAP.

< Edited >

The new naval vessels for the Philippine Navy are expected to have enhanced survivability, seakeeping and manoeuvring capability and be operable in up to Sea State 5 and also have stealth characteristics. The vessels (hull numbers P159 and P160) will be further complemented by the low Radar Cross Section (RCS) design of the upmast SharpEye™ radar sensor carbon fibre housing and antenna turning unit. What’s more the reduced probability of intercept by ESM equipment characteristic inherent from the SharpEye™’s 300W low power output further aligns to the requirements derived from the HHI HDF-3000 frigate design.

The HDF-3000 type Frigate is the latest multi-purpose combatant designed by HHI in late 2000 under ROKN FFX Program. The modern, powerful, stealthy frigate will replace HDF-2000 Ulsan Class Frigate which had been operating as major force of ROKN ever since delivery by HHI in 1980 HDF-2000H is derivative and 2nd generation of HDF-2000 with helicopter landing deck and hangar, applying stealth technology.
