ELM-2228S AMDR

The ELM-2228S AMDR (Automatic Missile Detection Radar) is an operating in S-Band multimode air/surface search radar. The EL/M-2228S is available in 2D and 3D configurations. The radar is designed to detect sea-skimming missiles, generate automatic threat alerts and provide an automatic, track-while-scan (more than 100 targets simultaneously) air and surface surveillance capability. It can also be configured to incorporate a dual S- and X-Band feed to create a dual-function surveillance/gunnery and AMDR radar.

EL/M-2228S can be fitted with an L-Band identification friend-or-foe subsystem if required and can be supplied in any one of three system configurations:

The transmitter uses a travelling wave tube (TWT) as a final power amplifier stage. The high power AMDR are equipped with a booster using a Crossed-Field Amplifier (Amplitron). The TWT is a preamplifier then.
