X-TAR3D (X-band Tactical Acquisition Radar 3D) is operating in the X-Band compact and lightweight air surveillance and target acquisition radar for short and very short-range air defense systems. It performs the functions of short range search, detection, acquisition, tracking, classification, and identification of air targets flying at very low altitudes.
X-TAR3D is a fully coherent phased-array pulse Doppler radar. Elevation information is obtained through up to twelve simultaneously receiving stacked beams. The radar architecture is based on multiple transmitter and receiver modules that assure high reliability and graceful degradation. The radar electronics are integrated inside the antenna unit; data interface with other units (IFF, MMI, etc.) is via the Ethernet channel.
The naval version X-TAR3D/M has an extended range of 40 NM (≙ 75 km).
