The RADAR system typically consists of a transmitter generating an electromagnetic signal that an antenna radiates into space. When this signal strikes any object, it gets reflected or reradiated in several directions. This reflected or echo signal is received by the radar antenna which delivers it to the receiver, where it is processed to determine the geographical statistics of the object. The range is determined by the measuring the time taken by the signal to travel from the RADAR to the target and back.
Radars can be used for identifying, locating, tracking, and recognizing objects of various kinds at considerable distances. The targets may be aircraft, ships, spacecraft, automotive vehicles, and astronomical bodies, or even birds, insects, and rain. Besides determining the presence, location, and velocity of such objects, radar can sometimes obtain their size and shape as well.
6 major parts of a RADAR System:
- A Transmitter
- Threshold Decision
Dioon radar technology provides the situational awareness solutions that customers need to make confident decisions. Whether airborne, shipboard, ground-based, mobile or fixed-site, used for air traffic management, ground control approach, 3D defense surveillance, maritime patrol, precision targeting and fire control, coastal surveillance, Dioon radars provide the capability and the flexibility required for mission success. When customers need to understand the airspace environment – to know what’s out there, how far away it is, where it’s going, how fast it’s moving or what it’s made of – they come to Dioon.
Dioon has led the world in the development and manufacture of radars and warning systems. Adaptable to the evolving requirements of defense and commercial markets, our advanced radar technologies support a multitude of military and domestic operation missions in law enforcement, homeland security, search and rescue, disaster relief and environmental science. Dioon radars help identify and protect the coast and navy ships from potential threats, land high performance military aircraft and large cargo military planes in the harshest weather environments and low visibility, track ships and boats in littoral borders and provide surveillance and weather information. They support search and rescue, track oil spills and ice flows, locate stranded vessels, map terrain and severe weather patterns and ensure safe, effective air traffic management. We continue to build on our decades-long radar leadership with modern digital waveform technology, advanced active antenna arrays and intuitive user interfaces that enable successful operations.
