The outstanding radar system can detect and track both sea and airborne targets, over land and water, all with an impressive instrumented range.
An electronically scanned radar beam overcomes the limitations of rotating antennas through faster beam-pointing to the target or area, a characteristic only possible with active phased array technology. This gives the radar the ability to adapt the transmission waveform according to target dynamics and background clutter. The result is exceptional performance to simultaneously track multiple air and sea targets while protecting the radar from single failure with graceful degradation capability.
