The coherent radar transmitter provides reliable performance even in poor weather. Depending on the clutter situation and ECM threat, the radar selects its frequency agility pattern between 32-pulse bursts and pulse-Doppler signal processing, 4-pulse bursts and MTI processing, and pulse-to-pulse agility. The PRF and pulse width are selected depending on the range to the target.
The new digital receiver, combined with the improved signal processing, enables a greater degree of flexibility of e.g. pulse length and waveform for adaptation to new threats. The transmitted pulses are frequency coded and pulse compression in the receiver ensures a high range resolution in all modes.
The radar design incorporates many ECCM features:
- Very low antenna side lobes
- Very wide bandwidth
- A large number of transmission frequencies
- Random selection of frequency
- Lock On Jam, Track On Jam
The CEROS 200 has a new advanced video tracker to enhance the passive modes; passive search, detection and tracking. It includes sensor fusion, i.e. simultaneous TV and IR tracking, correlation tracking and background suppression.
Up to four simultaneous targets are automatically detected during acquisition and tracking within the field of view. This allows the operator to easily acquire and change targets within fractions of a second.
