At ADEX 2017, the International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition currently held in Seoul, South Korea, local company LIG Nex1 rolled out its new "Short Range Air Defense Radar".
This new active electronically scanned array (AESA) tridimentional radar uses gallium nitride (GaN) technology for its TR modules. This allows the system to track small UAVs and achieve high resolution and accuracy.
Acting as a local air defense radar, it can detect air threats such as aircraft, helicopter, missiles and UAVs. This X-band radar even has a feature to detect and track incoming anti radiation missiles (ARMs).
Fitted on a 6x6 truck chassis the system demonstrates superior levels of mobility and the ability to keep up with troops and convoys on the move. In can also be networked with K30 Biho (Flying Tiger) twin 30 mm self-propelled anti-aircraft systems and provide them with target data.
