Solid-state radar

S-Band Solid-State Primary Surveillance low-cost, high-performance radar system. LightWave operates in two fundamental operational modes.

  • When configured in its Low PRF mode, LightWave operates as a low cost, primary surveillance radar.
  • When configured in its High PRF mode, LightWave, in addition to operating as a surveillance radar system, also offers advanced radar imaging capabilities.

Technical specification

Frequency S-Band
Instrumented Range up to 100 nmi
Azimuth 360° coverage
Design Solid-state with high MTBF

High PRF configuration allows it to be an even more effective sensor that permits very difficult problems – such as mitigating the radar clutter effects produced by wind turbines.
