Naval vessels rely on radar systems for fleet tracking and threat monitoring. Radar utilizes radio waves to detect the range, angle of approach, and speed of surrounding objects. Modern radar systems combine traditional radar with thermal cameras for improved insight into potential threats. Naval radar systems are designed to handle the unpredictable nature of the sea and withstand a range of severe conditions and temperatures. Modern radar systems are fitted with sophisticated temperature management systems to maintain optimal operating temperatures. To protect sensitive electronics, thermal pipes are routed through system heat sinks to absorb and disperse heat from areas with concentrated thermal loads.
