3D Radar

DBRXL (RSR 320) - 3D Air Defence Radar 1

    Reutech Radar Systems has developed a 3-dimensional ground-based dual-band radar technology demonstrator which deliver world-leading performance in missile fire control applications. This demonstrator has been produced in partnership with the Department of Defence, Armscor, CSIR, Denel and the Universities of Stellenbosch and Cape Town.

    The system is based on the ESR 220 Thutlwa local warning radar already in service with the SA Army Air Defence Artillery, with the addition of high-accuracy 3D target detection and tracking capabilities. The suitability of the product for the support of ground-based Surface-To-Air Missiles (SAMs) was asserted in the superior tracking accuracy of aircraft under surveillance.
