Indian state-owned defence public sector firm, Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) Is showcasing its 3D Low Level Light Weight Radar at the ongoing Indo Defence expo.
The 3D LLLWR is a multi-faceted ground-based S-Band radar that can be deployed in diverse terrains like plains, deserts, mountain tops and high-altitude regions.
The ground-based S-Band 3D Low Level Light Weight Surveillance Radar can detect and track targets such as helicopters, fighters and UAVs at low and medium altitudes. The radar sweeps 360 degree in azimuth and 30 degree in elevation to provide air space awareness and the semi-distributed active aperture radar uses advanced VLSI and high-speed digital technologies like high efficiency T/R modules, DDS, digital receiver and programmable signal processor to provide 3D air space awareness with high accuracy, resolution and reliability.
The radar is easily re-locatable and can be deployed or decamped in less than 15 minutes. The remote operation of the radar through Commander’s Display Unit (CDU) upto 1 km from the radar provides safety to the crew during operation. The quadripod-mounted radar is built to operate in networked or stand-alone mode to support joint or independent operations by Air Force.
