PGSR-3i 'Beagle'

PORTABLE GROUND SURVEILLANCE RADAR

PGSR-3i Beagle

PGSR-3i ‘Beagle’ is a unique lightweight man-portable radar, which is capable of intercepting, detecting and tracking targets moving on or close to the ground. It can also classify and differentiate targets based on their size and movement characteristics.

WIDE RANGE OF USAGE

The radar is a versatile, cost-effective solution offering a multitude of advantages making it an ideal choice for border guard, battlefield surveillance, civilian and military installation security and combat operations duties.

PGRSR-3i ‘Beagle’ can be carried in backpacks by two-man teams to cover areas hardly approachable by vehicles.

It is also mountable on vehicles and on field posts as needed. It can be used as a standalone unit or in a network of radars as required by the specifics of the surveillance scenario. The radar is very durable, capable of withstanding a wide range of environmental factors and is also very reliable, with only a minimal chance of malfunctioning (MTBF > 10000 hours). Due to its operating principles PGSR-3i ‘Beagle’ has minimal possibility of being jammed or intercepted (LPI - Low Probability of Intercept).

OVERVIEW

The highly advanced DSP technologies integrated in PGSR-3i ‘Beagle’ differentiate between moving and stationary targets; determine the exact parameters of the detections and control the adaptive surveillance parameters during changing environmental conditions. The radar is controlled from the operator unit or command center. The radar’s control software is capable of utilizing various map formats and displaying the detected targets over the map. The software is designed in a user friendly way, it is easy to use even for untrained operators. The software supports the integration of this single radar into complex multisensor systems. Every surveillance data and user interaction is recorded and can be replayed for further analysis.

MBR-2D

MBR-2D

MULTIBEAM GROUND SURVEILLANCE RADAR

MBR-2D

The MBR-2D radar is the next generation of man-portable medium range Ground Surveillance Radars (GSR).

BENEFITS

check

Extremely low false alarms

check

Continuous real time detection and tracking

check

Advanced Operator software

check

No moving parts, fully solid state

check

Compact and light

check

Fully integration ready (C4I/EO)

OVERVIEW

The Radar is capable to continuously (without any time gap) detect ground and low flying small aircraft and rotorcraft. The Radar provides detection, automatic tracking and classification of the targets. Both automatic and manual target classification is available to the operator. The Radar is based on Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Technology (FMCW). It utilizes low transmission power and continuously changing frequency providing for low probability of detection and interception (LPI).
The Radar utilizes 32 frequency channels in a wide operating frequency range to eliminate potential environmental disturbances and interferences and to adapt to the operating environment.
Embedded GPS and magnetic compass unit are installed for quick deployment and settings. The Radar is portable due to its low weight and provides easy installation in hardly accessible locations. The Radar is certified to withstand and operate in harsh environmental conditions and is suited for terrain vehicles transportation conditions.

The Radar is fully solid state, low power and low dissipation design, providing for very high MTBF. The Radar is designed for easy integration with command and control systems and can be interfaced via Ethernet or RS485.
