New radar for Royal Navy

For a change the Royal Navy is to get some investment. £100 million is being spent on new radars for the Type 23s, landing ships, Ocean and the new carriers. The BAE Systems Artisan radar can "track a target the size of a snooker ball over 20km away" which sounds pretty cool and using some beloved MOD buzzwordese provides improved "3D maritime Medium Range Radar (MRR)" capability.
