Radar Training Lab

The Radar Training System is still the only real radar trainer that operates safely inside a classroom or lab, demonstrating that the technical advancement achieved by this system has been unequalled since. The computer-based control of the radar’s processing and display functions ensures it will continue to be a leading-edge pedagogical product for many years to come.

The system uses patented technology to provide students with real — not simulated — hands-on experience in the use of radar to detect and track passive targets at very short range in the presence of noise and clutter. The very low transmitter power allows for safe operation in a variety of training environments.
