TRS 2052, TRS 2053, TRS 2056

These members of a family of frequency diversity radars are operating in L-Band. The TRS 2052 air defence long-range surveillance radar and the medium-range radars TRS 2053 and TRS 2056 “Centaure” use smaller antennas with the same electronics and two transmitters using long life magnetrons. They are a further development of the TRS 2050. A fourth solid-state version of this radar family is the TRAC 2000N.

The dimensions of the double curved reflector are:

Switching between linear and circular polarization is provided on all radars in this family.
