The RDL-45 “Warta” is a software-defined multi-purpose L-Band radar with an active phased array antenna based on distributed solid-state air-cooled T/R modules. It scans the space around the radar through mechanical rotation of the antenna azimuthally and with simultaneous electronic beam control in the elevation plane. The radar design has a fault-tolerant architecture, using advanced “soft-fail” management.
The radar design and capability include IFF Mark XIIA (military Mode 5 and civil Mode S) with a dedicated IFF antenna located on top of the main antenna, and its own decoy system. The complete RDL-45WA system is transported by two Jelcz 8x8 high-mobility trucks with trailers.
