Hughes Air Defense Radar
The HADR primary radar operates over a bandwidth greater than 12 per cent. The radar achieves a detection range of at least 320 km for a 1 m² target. The instrumented range coverage is 500 km. Versatile computer control enables radar coverage to 30,000 m Altitude and up to 24° elevation.
The Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) subsystem was the version D14 of the German
until December 2006. Now the radar has been updated to the new
MSSR 2000 I
using the ICAO standard Mark Ⅻ.
Four HADR systems were operational in Germany, two used in conjunction with the NATO Air Defence Ground Environment (NADGE), and known as GEADGE (German ADGE). They have all been replaced by the more modern Ground Master GM 403.
