WEATHER RADAR MODERNIZATION


Weather radars are expensive, long term working equipment. Older radars have a problem with spare parts, as some of them are obsolete. Modernization is the only solution to extend their live and to keep radar in service for certain number of years.

Renewal of that equipment, using innovative algorithms and components having improved technology status promises to provide cost effective solution. Combination of existing general overhauled mechanical part and new electronic is proper solution.

Transmitting system with new solid state modulator, receiving branch with new digitalized receiver and data exchange communication unit for sending data to the remote center, and with the possibility of being remotely controlled extends radar life for next 10 years.

MS600 RADAR MODERNIZATION

 

MTTMS600, modernized S600, is a 3D dependable modern tactical radar system for early warning, airspace control, aircraft identification and fighter control. “State-of-the-Art” technology was implemented in project of S600 modernization together with modern design methods, result was dependable modern radar.

Developed system significantly increases operating availability, technical reliability and airspace surveillance quality compared to the base system, remaining cost effective.

L-Band surveillance radar

L-Band, surveillance radar transmitter is with solid state modulator and klystron type output power amplifier tube.

This modern technology as substitution for old technology provides more than seven times longer estimated lifetime (40.000 hours).

C-Band Height finder Radar

C-Band, height finder radar transmitter is based on solid state modulator and coaxial magnetron of the latest generation. Modern technology as solution is the cost effective option with 25 times longer estimated lifetime (50.000 hours) than old technology.

MTTMS600 with digitally coded pulse and pulse compression technique provides range accuracy and high target resolution, and with anti-jamming technique even in jamming conditions.

OPS cabin

For their work, radar operators have three radar display consoles where on radar displays all calculated and prepared data are presented. Ground to air communication equipment and monitoring / scanning radio are there as well.

Cabins Equipment Features

All electronics are packed in three new, rugged, high strength, aluminum shelters, with RFI shielding, equipped to withstand adverse weather and terrain. With his L-Band and C-Band antennas MTTMS600 can be transported by cargo aircraft, helicopter or by truck.

AN/TPS-70 RADAR MODERNIZATION

AN/TPS-70 is tactical mobile S band phased array 3D radar produced by Westinghouse (Northrop Grumman).

Radar AN/TPS-70 still in use

Production of still used AN/TPS-70 started on early '70, and all of them have a nice numbers of year in service. Modernization is needed to keep radar in service for certain number of years.

TRANSMITTER MODERNIZATION

  • Solid state modulator with Twystron
  • New cooling system
  • New control system

AN/TPS-70 FEATURES

New Technology - Solid State switching for improved performance and reliability.

New Design - Compact – for easy integration Modular - enables power upgrade possibilities.

Operation
Easy to service and maintain – Field Replaceable Units
Easy to use – turn-key solutions offers fully integrated system.

AIR DEFENCE CONTROL CENTER MODERNIZATION

  • C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence,Surveillance, and Reconnaissance )
  • C3 (Command, Control, Communications)
  • NCW (Network Centric Warfare)

All modern radars with integrated data exchange units, or older radars after modernization, MTT AERO C&RT can integrate within radar squadron into radar network surveillance system.

Such integration opens way to integrate radars and air force squadrons data with Air defense control unit.

In Air defense control center all data would be presented in real time.

Data like threat evaluation, target ranking functions, Air and SAM system status, would be available to commander for a decision on control and coordination for all offensive, defensive & support missions within the area under his command with the best weapons solutions.
