Anemone

Anemone (Appareil Numérisé pour l'Exploitation des Mouvements d'Objectifs Navals Éloignés), is operating in X-Band multi-mode airborne radar. The radar uses a frequency hopping method and also has the ability to track a target discontinuously. Anemone provides the weapon system with all the data required for firing air-to-sea AM39 “Exocet” missiles, and the data needed for air-to-ground fire control. It can also be used for aircraft self-protection, as it can handle the fire control of air-to-air weapons.

Anemone uses a flat, passive phased-array antenna (PESA). The transmitting power is generated by a traveling wave tube (TWT), and a digital signal processor.

It was built into Dassault-Breguet Super Étendard in the 1990s as a modernization and replacement for the obsolete Agave radar. About 40 radar sets were built.
