Euroradar ECR 90

ECR 90 is a third-generation coherent I-band multimode radar, based on the technology of Blue Vixen. It incorporates a significant increase in processing power, which will exploit fully the high information content of the advanced transmission waveform, with wideband spread spectrum, allowing operations to be maintained in a hostile electronic warfare environment. Very high quality information will be available to the pilot using these new techniques. Features include look-up/look-down and multitarget capabilities, high resistance to electronic countermeasures, target identification, a high degree of automation and high reliability. New generation programmable signal processors provide fast and flexible changes of mode and function.
