Theia is operating in the L-Band 3D surveillance radar family, specially designed for wind farm mitigation and for air traffic control. It provides a clutter-free picture to the operator including a real-time 3D target position.
Theia 16A and Theia 64A use a single antenna array with a 90° search sector. They differ in the transmission power and the achievable range. Theia 384A uses several antenna arrays that are arranged in a circle and thus enable a 360° search.
