The information requested is not held. The Scanter 4100 air search radar is one of the systems on board HMS Clyde, a River Class Offshore Patrol Vessel, which is chartered by the Ministry of Defence from BAE Systems Maritime—Naval Ships (BAES MNS), who supply the vessel as a complete capability to meet the Ministry of Defence's requirement.

The ship is equipped with a number of on board systems, including the Scanter 4100 radar, to allow it to fulfil its role but the contractual agreement with BAES MNS does not separately identify the cost of each of the on board systems.
