Ceros 200

Ceros 200 is operating in J-band frequency-agile naval fire-control radar. The system provides an autonomous electro-optic tracking capability using TV/infrared cameras and laser rangefinders in addition to the radar sensor. The CEROS 200 director is also available with an integrated I-band continuous-wave illuminator for use with the Sea Sparrow missile.

The antenna is a Cassegrain type with a diameter of 1 m. The additional horn radiator in the focus of the Cassegrain reflector is for target illumination in a different frequency band. The radar uses a helix Traveling Wave Tube transmitter. This allows a randomly pulse to pulse frequency hopping.

Ceros 200 was put into service at the beginning of the 1990s and is partly still in operation.
