LPI Radar-IRCS

NAVAL LPI RADAR

LPI Radar-IRCS is an X-band naval radar system featuring solid-state FMCW (Frequency- Modulated Continuous-Wave) technology with very low transmit power and frequency agility, making LPI Radar-IRCS a true Low-Probability-of-Intercept (LPI) radar. It implements state-of-theart hardware technology and advanced signal processing techniques which lead to superior capability in detection of surface targets. LPI Radar-IRCS is equipped with tracking software MATA® (MAritime Tracking Aid) to include ARPA functionality, AIS, ECDIS, GPS and compass, enabling INDERA MX-2AH to function as a complete on-board navigation system on its own. LPI Radar-IRCS is a quiet naval radar which allows you to see without being seen.
