Elta reveals fourth generation Naval Radar
Jun 10, 1999
ELTA Electronics Industries, a subsidiary of Israeli Aircraft Industries, announces the sale of a number of its EL/M-2238 STAR Naval Multipurpose Surveillance Search and Threat Alert Radars to several customers worldwide.
The STAR is a fully coherent S-band pulse-Doppler multi-beam multi-mode, multi-function radar. The radar performs long range surface and air surveillance in azimuth and elevation, provides fast detection and automatic threat alert of air targets and sea skimming missiles, and at the same time serves as designator for the ship's surface gunnery and anti air/anti missile fire control systems. This combination of functions, formerly requiring two separate radars, makes the STAR the ideal cost effective solution for small and medium size ships, where space and mast-top weight and area is at a premium.
The STAR features include 3D surface and elevation coverage and detection of air and surface targets, automatic multiple target track-while-scan (TWS), very low false alarm rate, automatic designation to the ship's weapon systems and interface capability with other sensors. The selection of S-band, and combination of pulse-Doppler configuration, advanced programmable signal processing and waveform programming capability, ensures peak performance even in extreme weather and clutter conditions.
ELTA has accumulated vast experience in the design, development and manufacture of advanced, state-of-the-art naval radars, and the STAR represents the fourth generation in this line. The STAR is currently in series production, and attracts high interest among naval operators around the world.
ELTA is located in Ashdod, Israel.
