Atlantika SMR

The Atlantika SMR is a non-coherent, operating in K-band Surface Movement Radar (SMR) for monitoring runways, taxi-ways and parking positions on airfields.

The concept is based on a maritime coastal radar for close range. The radar uses a magnetron transmitter. The airfield version can be equipped with two different antennas. Both are circular polarized waveguide slot antennas. The first version (type A2) forms a fan beam pattern. It covers a vertical angle of 7° and offers an antenna gain of 38 dB. The second version (Type A3) has an additional single-curved parabolic reflector to reduce the beam width in the elevation angle to 2.5° and forms a cosecant squared pattern. Its antenna gain in the main direction is 43 dB.
