  • Azimuth 360°
  • Height 30 000 m
  • Elevation up to 30°

The effective operation of the radar in the presence of jamming and clutter is achieved by using advanced, adaptive signal processing techniques, including adaptive clutter map, automated monitoring jamming, selection of less jammed frequency, staggered frequency repetition.
