ZB-298 was an X-Band mobile tactical ground-based static pulsed Doppler radar, developed by Marconi-Elliot Avionic Systems Ltd. in Borehamwood (UK) around 1965. The device was intended for use by reconnaissance units and delivered a acoustic and visual output. The radar was typically used by infantry reconnaissance units until the mid-1990s.
In the Royal Army Netherlands this radar was designated KL/TPS-4742.
