Leading edge DPCSS technology: ‘Radar Life Extension’ portfolio
Rakon’s Digital Pulse Compression Sub- systems (DPCSS) are the ideal solution when retrofitting or upgrading existing SAW based pulse compression radars. The DPCSS enables a remarkable improvement on the overall system performance and extends the life of the system.
The DPCSS may be form fit and function compatible with existing SAW or digital units; making it easy and convenient to use in all military and civil radars.
Due to the digital technology in Rakon’s DPCSS, the performances achieved are close to the theoretical limits possible - enabling improved aircraft detection, including:
• A high instantaneous dynamic range: side lobe level up to 5 dB better than analogue (SAW based) air traffic control systems
• High accuracy angular measurements: main lobe without base widening
• High flexibility: programmable parameters to enable customi- sation: e.g. waveforms and software upgrades.
Rakon's DPCSS are based on well- tested sustainable modules and proven designs (CI E03).
These off- the- shelf standard processing daughter boards enable short lead times. Rakon also offers customised mother boards with specific electrical interfacing and pin to pin compatibility and specific housing with mechanical interfaces: making them fully compatible with your existing system.
Rakon’s DPCSS are part of the ‘Radar Life Extension’ portfolio. Rakon can customise a solution to retrofit any part of your pulse compression radar, extending the radar’s life. We can advise the best solution for your next requirement.
