RDR-100

RDR-100 is operating in the Ku-band airborne navigation and weather radar operating on both civilian and military aircraft along air routes. The military version got the designator AN/APS-113. It was used in Bell UH-1 “Iroquois”, Sikorsky S-62, and Douglas EC-47 “Dakota”.

The parabolic antenna with a diameter of 12 inch has an antenna gain of 31 dBi.

The radar was ready for series production in 1964 and was replaced from 1973 by the RDR-1200 or its military designation AN/APS-113(V).
