RDR-1700

RDR-1700 is operating in X-Band multi-mode maritime surveillance and imaging radar. It has been designed to serve as search, surveillance, tracking and weather avoidance radar system mounted on both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. The radar can be equipped with different antenna shapes and sizes depending on the space available in the radome.

The RDR-1700A version uses a traveling wave tube as power amplifier. From the version RDR-1700B on, a solid state transmitter is used. This version was given the designation AN/ZPY-4 in the US Department of Defense.
