ELM-2248 “MF-STAR” (Multi-Function Search and Target Acquisition Radar) is operating in the S-Band digital AESA multi-function radar for naval vessels. The radar system delivers situation picture and weapon support, under severe target/environmental conditions.
The MF-STAR antenna includes 4 scalable faces that can be installed in various configurations and in different sizes. MF-STAR’s basic Transmit/Receive element digital output enables software only adaptive digital beamforming and mode variations to form a software-defined radar.
