In addition, generation of solid-state transmit power is 50% more efficient at UHF than at X-band, providing yet another significant advantage in overall system-power efficiency -- a big benefit for mobile radars." As a result, the MEADS SR is capable of long-range detection of all air-breathing and tactical ballistic-missile threats and provides a high-quality cue to the MFCR radar for engagement.
To support early-entry operations, a single MFCR can combine both the surveillance and fire-control functions to provide effective 360 degree air-defense coverage at reduced ranges.
In addition, the use of digital beam forming for both the SR and MFCR provides "unprecedented flexibility to adapt radar performance to mission needs," Goulette said.
