To detect targets, the Hawk system uses two acquisition radars. One of these, the Continuous-Wave Acquisition Radar (CWAR), covers the low-altitude zone, the primary zone of consideration for Hawk. This radar utilizes the doppler effect to detect low-flying targets. It operates in J-Band with a power of 400 Watts and covers a range up to 70 km. The CWAR turns synchronuous with the PAR.
