Saber M200

Saber M200 is operating in S-Band three-dimensional mid-range anti-aircraft defense radar installed in a 20-foot container. The additional name Saber (Sistema de Acompanhamento de alvos aéreos Baseado em Emissão de Radiofrequência, English: Aerial target monitoring system based on high-frequency radiation) is due to the entire development concept for Brazilian radars. The radar can be used for surveillance and early warning in batteries and anti-aircraft artillery groups or air traffic control or border surveillance activities.

The radar uses two faces active phased array antennas with 70° azimuth coverage and 60° elevation coverage each. It is coupled with a version of the Saber S200 secondary radar, whose monopulse antenna shortened to the width of the container is pushed upwards through an opening in the roof where it rotates continuously.
