MFTR-2100

MFTR-2100 (Multi-Frequency Tracking Radar) is a target tracking radar family operating in the X-band (IEEE designation) or in the I-band (NATO designation).

The individual types differ nominally by the suffixes, for example, MFTR-2100/45-3840, with an antenna gain of 45 dB and an average power of 3,840 watts. The antenna gain can vary from 36 to 45 dB in steps of 3  dB.

Five different pedestals are available, ranging from a man-portable tripod, a ship version, and mobile trailer versions to a permanently installed large version. This permanently installed version is an instrumentation radar and is then given a different letter combination in the name, in this case, the MSTS-2100/xx-xx radar. These letter combinations also indicate a different type of use, for example, MFSR-2100 (Multi-Frequency Surveillance Radar) as an air surveillance and target tracking radar.

The radar uses a frequency-modulated continuous wave radar technique, which allows for different types of modulation. To ensure accurate measurement and prevent unwanted additional antenna pattern deflection in the phased array antennas during range measurement, Successive Multiple Frequency Continuous Wave (S-MFCW) modulation is employed.
