What is Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar?
The MHR is the kind of radar which functions with a range of capabilities such as Active Electronically Scanned, Software-Defined, S-Band and Pulse-Doppler. It contains the highly urbane beam-creating abilities. At the same time, MHR comes equipped with tech-savvy and modern signal processing. It helps in provision of multiple missions that can be available on every single radar hemisphere. Another unique feature of MHR is its ability to offer record performance-to-price proportion.
Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar is highly mobile and compact in nature, which comes with the ability to deliver organic and tactful surveillance solutions. This radar will be highly useful for the border and force protection utilities.
The purpose of MHR would be to offer applications like air surveillance, opposing unmanned aerial systems, counter mortars and rockets as well as acting as the indicator for ground-movement target.
