Yes, the radar is the same, AWS-1 . All four Bellona class corvettes receives this radar during modernizations at 1960-1963.
The AWS-1 was Decca Radar’s first S-band sea-going radar. The product was developed in 1956/7, initially to address a Royal Danish Navy requirement for Air and Surface Warning with Target Indication.
AWS-1 and its 3D stabilized version AWS-2 can be seen on HMS Mermaid, Iranian Alvand class frigates, Brasilean  Niteroi class frigates, Ghana Kromantse class, Nigerian Dorina and ERIN'MI corvettes and also on some asian countries ships.
