Rapan (Cyrillic: «Рапан», a predatory Black Sea snail) is operating in the X-Band coastal surveillance radar. The radar is designed for monitoring the surface environment, automatic detection and monitoring of various types of moving surface objects with the determination of their coordinates and motion parameters, both in an autonomous mode and as part of automated systems.
The antenna is a slotted waveguide with a length of 2.8 m. Its vertical beam width is 20 degrees.
In a mobile version on a truck, the radar is marketed under the name Albatros. It contains other electro-optical surveillance equipment, an AIS receiver and communication equipment.
