Ground Master GM 200

Ground Master 200 (GM 200) is a multi-mission tactical 3-D medium range Air Defense radar.

The Ground Master 200 radar is carried as a single integrated package on one 8 × 8 truck, and all of the equipment is housed inside a 20 ft. ISO container. The 3D radar scan offers 70 degree elevation and can extend up to 80,000 feet, using a Stacked Beam Concept and Digital Beam Forming. Rotation gives it 360 degree coverage, and engagement mode doubles its rotation speed to 40 rpm, while shrinking effective range from 250 km to 100 km (see: radar time-budget).
