The Maars is multimode operating in C-Band acquisition radar for surveillance and weapon assignment. System performs automatic detection, track initiation and tracking of surface and air targets. Due to its modular design it can easily be adapted to a customer’s range, resolution and accuracy requirements using existing components.
Due to flexible communication interfaces to the combat system or when netted to other sensors, MAARS is suitable for integration with a track management system. The system has multi-beam scanning strategies to satisfy the special requirements of stand-alone radars for corvettes, patrol vessels, minesweepers, mine-hunters or as the self defense radar on frigates. Specific radar applications are sea skimmer detection with target assignment for close-in weapon systems.
