Stentor

Stentor is operating in the X-Band transportable long-range battlefield surveillance radar. It is fully transportable and weighs only 300 kg. Stentor is a pulsed Doppler radar designed to detect, recognize, and locate moving targets such as infantry, ground vehicles, helicopters, low-flying aircraft, and boats.

The Stentor radar was developed in the early 1980s. It was also manufactured under license in India and dramatically enhances the effectiveness of Indian artillery.
