Type 967/968

The operating in L-Band Type 967 air search radar is integrated with the Type 968 operating in S-Band surface and air search radar. They are designed to meet the requirements of air and surface warning, search and target designation, from sea level to high elevation angles. These radars are used as surveillance and acquisition radar for the Type 910 target tracker and missile guidance radar form the radar group for the Sea Wolf surface to air missile system.

The waveguide antennas for both radars are mounted back-to-back in a common housing carried by a single fully stabilized mount. The common radar signal processing is able to use the staggered pulse repetition frequency to unfold range ambiguities.
