New weapons of Defence

Weapon Detection Radar (WLR)

Swathi Weapon Locating Radar - Wikipedia

Weapon Detection Radar (WLR) an electronically scanned phased array radar. The radar automatically detects hostile cannons, mortars, and rocket launchers and tracks the favourable fire to detect the impact point of the friendly cannon fire by making the necessary refinements. The radar designed to detect small cross-sectioned projections across the battlefield horizon And it has the ability to simultaneously handle fire coming from weapons deployed at various locations. This radar uses advanced signal processing techniques for detecting and tracking projections in the presence of ground, seasonal movement, and other forms of disturbances in the EW landscape. When estimating both launch and impact points for the desired accuracy, algorithms for trajectory computation take environmental parameters into consideration.

The radar designed for high maneuverability, quick deployment, and decamp. The exterior design includes radar shelters, antennae, and cooling systems mounted on a sewable platform. The system designed to function in both the physical rigidity of the battlefield and the quiet hostile electronic warfare.
