ST801 is operating in the X-Band monopulse search- and tracking radar for use as the autotracking element in gunfire direction system, and in missile launching and guidance systems. Radar type ST801 is designed to interface with, and be controlled by, a weapon systems computer. Any air or surface target which has been detected either by the ship's surveillance radar, or by the ST801 in its own search mode, can be automatically acquired and tracked with the sightline stabilized against the roll and pitch motions of the ship.
In the search mode, the ST801 aerial rotates about a stabilized vertical axis providing a “true horizon” search. The performance of the radar in low angle air search, particularly when sea clutter conditions are present, can be enhanced by selection of moving target indication (MTI) signal processing.
The Radar type ST802 is the autonomous version of the ST801. It includes facilities and additional equipment for independent operation and control in systems not equipped with a central computer complex.
