India’s Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Sunil Lanba unveiled the 3D Air Surveillance Radar built by Navratna Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), today at the on-going DefExpo India 2018, in Chennai.
3D C/D Band Air Surveillance Radar is a Multi-Function Active Phased Array Radar with Solid state Transceiver for Land and Naval applications. The Radar provides 3 dimensional target data along with Doppler data.
The Radar employs multi-beam in elevation, mono pulse in azimuth, Digital Pulse compression, Pulse Doppler and many Advanced and contemporary Technologies, with very elegant and modular architecture. These technologies enable detection of very low RCS targets from complex land and sea clutter and jamming environment.
3D Air Surveillance Radar antenna is compact and can be accommodated on wheeled vehicles and small ships.
