Military radar should be an early warning, altering along with weapon control functions. It is specially designed to be highly mobile and should be such that it can be deployed within minutes.
Military radar minimizes mutual interference of tasks of both air defenders and friendly air space users. This will result in an increased effectiveness of the combined combat
ADVANCED FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Typical military radar has the following advanced features and benefits: -
All-weather day and night capability.
Multiple target handling and engagement capability.
Short and fast reaction time between target detection and ready to fire moment.
Easy to operate and hence low manning requirements and stress reduction under severe conditions.
Highly mobile system, to be used in all kind of terrain
Flexible weapon integration, and unlimited number of single air defence weapons can be provided with target data.
High resolution, which gives excellent target discrimination and accurate tracking.
The identification of the targets as friend or hostile is supported by IFF, which is an integral part of the system.
During the short time when the targets are exposed accurate data must be obtained. A high antenna rotational speed assures early target detection and a high data update rate required for track accuracy.
THE SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
A typical military radar system can be split up into three parts:
The radargroup consists of antenna, mast unit, remote control, high tension unit, LO/AFC (Local Oscillator/Automatic Frequency Control) unit, radar transmitter, radar receiver, video processor, waveguide drier and IFF interrogator.
The transmitter and receiver forms the active part of the system. The integrated radar/IFF antenna is fitted on the collapsible mast, mounted on the container. The container is connected by cable to the operator/control shelter.
Shelter contains display unit, processor unit, TV monitor, colour PPI (Plan Position indicator), IFF control unit, air conditioner, battery charger with battery, Radio set with antenna for data link, radio set with antenna for voice transmission i.e. communication, filter box for radios.
