HENGELO, Netherlands, April 24 (UPI) -- Thales Nederland reports its APAR multifunction radar has successfully completed its first sea acceptance test on a Danish navy frigate.

The Active Phased Array Radar is the first of three systems delivered to Denmark under a 2006 contract. The systems are for Denmark's Iver Huitfeldt class frigates.

From January 2011-January 2012 factory acceptance tests for all three radars were performed and they were installed on the frigates.

"This SAT demonstrates our capability to maintain the highest possible level of product quality over a long period of time," said Thales Nederland Chief Executive Officer Gerben Edelijn. "We are proud of the excellent relationship with the Royal Danish Navy."

"Following this SAT, there will be a harbor acceptance test later this year to test the ship's Anti-Air Warfare and Fire Control capabilities," the company said. "The program is scheduled to end early 2014."
