MGR

MGR (Turkish: Milli Gözetim Radarı, i.e.: national surveillance radar) is operating in S-Band 2D- pulse-Doppler radar developed for air traffic control. It is a fully coherent radar in frequency diversity and is fitted with an additional weather channel providing six levels of reflectivity.

The radar obviously uses as antenna a replica of the antenna G-33 (primary radar) and the ALE-9 MSSR antenna of the ATCR-33S from the company Leonardo. It consists of a parabolic reflector that provides a cosecant squared antenna pattern. There are two feed horns for high and low beam pattern. The polarisation is switchable between linear and circular orientation.

The prototype of this radar is installed under a protective radome at the airport Gaziantep (36°56'29.24" N   37°27'42.36" E, Turkye). The first flight inspection for certification took place on February 24, 2020.
