Radar modernizations
The grounds of radar modernization
 The availability and reliability of the old type radars can be
significantly improved by updating the electronic systems, and they
can be made suitable for a modern, automatic data transmission.
 New requirement is the creation of interoperability, which these
equipment aren’t originally suitable to
 Old systems do not support the use of the changed combat
operational models
 Countries are looking for the most economical way, therefore the
modernization has come to the front all over the world.
 Common characteristic of radars made by either Russian or different
western companies is the robust mechanical and electromechanical
structure, which gives the opportunity and the practicality as well for
the modernization.
Benefits of radar modernization
Increased reliability and decreased operation and maintenance costs
 Digital signal processing and data transmission
 Unified display for analogue and synthetic radar signals
Full-scale data recording
 Advanced failure localization support
Improved operator comfort
Realized modern air space control systems by Arzenál
 The Radar Selector in 1995 (for AN/TPX-54 secondary radars)
 The Automatic Radar Extractor (ARE) and Radar Head Processor
(RHP) was developed in 1997 and 1998 in order to provide ASOC
with digital radar data
 ARE and RHP equipment digitalize, display and transmit to ASOC
the signals of the traditional analogue output radars
 The modernized P-37 radar was the first radat type with new
digital receiver, signal processor and controlling system in 1998
and 1999
 Modernization of P-18 radar in 2002 and 2003
 The modernization of the SZT-68U in 2005
 French type Medium Power Radar modernization for other NATO
 More than 30 complete modernized radars, operated by the
Hungarian Home Defence Forces
P-18 radar modernization
Special aspect of P-18 radar modernization
The wavelenght of P-18 radar is approximately two meters. Due to its
wavelenght, the radar is able to detect aircrafts using stealth
 The radar can be connected to modern airspace control systems
having digital input, as:
 Its target detection capability is more stable
 Standard deviation of azimuth and distance has reduced
 It has digital data output
 By using modern digital signal processing technology the radar’s
protection against jamming is improving, as well as the capability of
detceting air targets with small reflective surface.
 The operator’s work conditions are improving, as there is more
space available in the instrument cabin and the modern computerbased workstation greatly helps and simplifies the operator’s work.
Brief description of „P-18H” radar
 The radar spare parts base is based on the latest commercial offthe-shelf items.
 Transmitter type solid state (based on pulse-compression
 Built-in test and diagnostic equipments.
 The locator tuning is unnecessary.
 The requirement for maintenance of the newly built in units is little
(the MTBF is relatively long (12.000 hours)
 The modernization improves the surveillance probability, the path
of air targets is automatically tracked. The station is able to
recieve data from other radars, the informatioon exchange
between radars is based on agreed exchange protocol.
Technical description of P-18 radar modernization
combined with technical adaption
Description of the modernization implemented by the HM Arzenál Zrt.
on the P-18 long detection range locator:
 The radar has newly developed hardware.
 The frequency range is to be extended (150-175 MHz), the
operational frequency is to be increased from 4 to 200, allowing the
immediate automatioc frequency tunung.
 The transmitter and reciever units consist of only solid state
elements. The transmitter consists of modular systems. The modular
design allows that in case of failure, not the complete transmitter
system will be inoperable, only certain parts, which allows
continuous operation of the radar.
Radar operation modes
 The radar provides the operation modes of the basic P-18 radar, and
the following operation modes:
 “Combat” – radar equipment are switched on, ready to provide all
combat functions.
 “Stand-by” – radar equipment are switched on, except the
transmitting device. Time to change from „Stand-by” mode to
„Combat” mode is not more than 5 sec.
 “Function test” - automatic control of the radar combat readiness.
 “Diagnostics” – automatic examination of faults with the test
programs of the radar, to identify the faulty systems, units, blocks.
 “Training” – This operation mode provides the „Combat” training of
the operators with simulating the air situation.
 “Maintenance” – in this operation mode, a „maintenance (test-repair)
program” may run on the computer equipment.
