RPA

RPA (Radar Primario Argentino) is operating in the L-band (IEEE designation) or in the D-band (NATO designation) long-range 3D surveillance radar. It uses a phased-array antenna.

The prototype was commissioned by the Argentinian Air Force in 2014. So far, 9 of these radar units have been delivered.
