Database of radars
This part of the website is originated historically and should first tell more about the radar equipment used in the former East German air force. For comparison have been included more modern (at that time) radars. Both tasks are no longer necessary. It is here only a fragmentary collection of different radars.
Here on this page, the selection of the displayed radar equipment is in alphabetical order. The structure of the file names is made according to the following scheme:
- Strategic long-range radars (Subdirectory: 01.oth/ karte001 to karte005)
- Air defense radars (Subdirectory: 02.surv/ karte001 to karte019)
- Air traffic control radars (Subdirectory: 03.atc/ karte001 to karte025)
- Battlefield radar (Subdirectory: 04.battle/ karte001 to karte016)
- Perimeter Radar (Subdirectory: 05.perimeter/ karte001 to karte005)
- Missile Control Radar (Subdirectory: 06.missile/ karte001 to karte004)
- Naval radar (Subdirectory: 07.naval/ karte001 to karte017)
- Radar based on aircraft (Subdirectory: 08.airborne/ karte001 to karte010)
- Radar based on satellites (Subdirectory: 09.space/ karte001 to karte004)
- Weather radar (Subdirectory: 10.weather/ karte001 to karte019)
- Ancient Radars (Subdirectory: 11.ancient/ karte001 to karte074)
- Radar Jammer (Subdirectory: 12.ecm/ karte001 to karte003)
- Laboratory equipment (Subdirectory: 13.labs/ karte001 to karte001)
- Secondary radar (Subdirectory: 14.ssr/ karte001 to karte010)
This categorization is outdated since then. 17 years ago (start time of the Radartutorial) some radar equipment was still in service, which one is already part of history today.
Certainly there are (or existed in history) much more radars in the world than those mentioned here.
However, I can only list those radars here, about which I have freely available material.
There is no sense to copy material from other sites (for example from Wikipedia) just to appears another historical radar in this list.
However, if you have freely available material on new modern radar sets, and the confidence to create an article about it, then I have no problem to publish this article here in addition. (This offer has been often used by various radar manufacturers.)
