RAC 3D “Flamingo”

The RAC alert and co-ordination 3-D radar operates in the G/H-band which offers, within a 100 km range envelope, the best trade-off between atmospheric attenuation, transmitting power resolution and antenna size versus detection of small targets, such as those flying at very low Altitude in heavy clutter. RAC 3D employs a state-of-the-art planar phased-array and a digital pulse compression.

Tree types of the RAC radar station are in service:

The RAC 3D alert and co-ordinating radar accomplishes the following tasks:

The RAC 3D gap filler radars accomplishes the following tasks:
