Argos-10 is operating in the L-Band ground-based long-range 2D air surveillance radar used in the Italian air defense. The water-cooled transmitter was a license production of Canadian Raytheon Corp.
The Argos-10 was produced since 1972 and used the antenna G 14 of Selenia. At least 10 radar sets were produced. In 1999, it was replaced by the Rat-31SL.
