    HMS Daring unveils upgraded sensor system at DIMDEX 2012
    MS Daring, the first of the Royal Navy's (RN’s) Type 45 destroyers, Arrived at DIMDEX (Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference), showcasing her state-of the-art technology, including the new, fully digital, radar electronic support measures (RESM) system supplied by Thales UK.
    ...
    The ship has recently set sail on operational duty, following the recent outfitting of the new digital antennas as part of the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD’s) UAT MOD 2 update programme. Thales is currently the sole supplier of RESM equipment to the RN’s warship and submarine fleet.

    In conjunction with the MoD, Thales has developed the direct radio frequency sampling and wideband digital receiver technology necessary to achieve a true digital antenna.

    To those who may know, is this corrosion (I understand it is perfectly normal to see some amount of rust on a ship that's been out at sea) or just grime/scum resulting from a mix of smoke, rain and sea mist ?



    Far as I could remember I only saw this on HMS Daring

    I think the mast needs a good washdown with soap and scrubs.
