TPS-830KE is operating in the X-Band low-altitude surveillance radar that is designed for use as an air defence gap filler, a coastal surveillance sensor or as a point defence tool. The radar can be integrated with a variety of air defence weapons.
The antenna uses parabolic reflector providing a cosecant squared pattern, and an integrated dipole array for an operating in L-Band IFF interrogator. The power amplifier transmitter uses a traveling wave tube to amplify the radars waveform in one of 51 pre-selected frequencies.
