    Çok Amaçlı Faz Dizili Radar (ÇAFRAD) radar system will be the most important system on Turkey's future TF-2000 Anti Air Warfare Frigates. Turkey plans to acquire 4 of these ships with an option for 2 more. There are rumors that the number is actually 8.

    ÇAFRAD is a Multifunction, Phased Array Radar System which represent a common, scalable radar solution for the naval platforms. Development of the ÇAFRAD System is nearly completed, in scope of the contract signed between Undersecretariat for Defence Industries-Turkey (SSM) and ASELSAN in September 2013.

    The system will include 3 radar systems working together to achieve the following missions:

    » Multi Function Active Phased Array Radar:
    o Volume and horizon search,
    o Air and surface targets detection, tracking and classification,
    o Small, low altitude and high velocity air targets detection and tracking
    o Fire control quality target tracking.

    » Long range Active Phased Array Radar:
    o Long Range volume search,
    o Air and surface targets detection and tracking.

    » Active Phased Array Illuminator:
    o Semi Active Missile Guidance

    The ÇAFRAD will provide Turkey with full coverage.
