Surveillance radar surface surveillance standby conditions 2D Radar

The Nebo-SVU radar is designed for use in Air Defence forces and provides:

  • automatic detection, positioning, and tracking of a wide range of current air targets, including ballistic and low-signature stealthy targets;
  • identification friend-or-foe interrogation;
  • location of active jammers;
  • target identification when operating as part of both advanced automated Air Defence command and control systems and non-automated control systems.

Radar design features:

  • an active electronically scanned array (AESA) with analog-to-digital data signal conversion in each array row;
  • digital space-time signal processing;
  • flexible adaptation of the signal processing system to the electronic countermeasures environment and radar’s condition;
  • a high-performance digital moving-target indication system, enabling reliable tracking of air targets under moisture target and passive jamming conditions;
  • adaptive side lobe suppression.

The use of the VHF waveband makes the radar almost invulnerable to current and future anti-radiation missiles.
