Arthur is a standalone C-band medium-range weapon-locating system that detects and locates enemy fire. It utilises a passive phased-array antenna technology for optimised battlefield performance. The technology provides the perfect balance between mobility, range, accuracy, ECCM, operational availability and operational cost.

Proven operational availability

  • Comprehensive built-in test and high degree of automation
  • Man-machine interface developed with extensive user co-operation and feedback
  • Mean Time Between Critical Failure (MTBCF) > 1,800 hours
  • Applications include counter-battery operations, fire control, peace-enforcement missions and force protection by suppressing enemy rockets, artillery and mortars (RAM)
