Specification
Architectural Overview
* Radar type: E-scan Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) Doppler Ground Surveillance Radar (GSR)
* Frequency band: Ku band
* Spectrum occupancy:
– Wide-band (WB): 15.7 to 17.2 GHz
– Narrow-band (NB): 16.2 to 17.2 GHz
* Scan type: fully electronic scanning in azimuth ('e-scan') using a Passive Electronically Scanned Array (PESA)
* Pan type: fully integrated cable drive positioner allowing 360° surveillance
* Transmitter power (nominal): 1 Watt (standard power transmitter version) or 4 Watt (high power transmitter version)
* Multi-radar operation: supported and unlimited
* Embedded software and firmware: field upgradeable via network connection

 Target Detection Performance
* Maximum targets per scan: 700
* Maximum detection ranges:
– Crawling person (RCS 0.1 m²): 3.2 km (2.0 mi.)*
– Walking person (RCS 1 m²): 7.4 km (4.6 mi.)*
– Moving RIB (RCS 5 m²): 14.2 km (8.9 mi.)*
– Moving vehicle (RCS 30 m²): 16.0 km (9.9 mi.)*
– Large moving vehicle (RCS 100 m²): 22.1 km (13.7 mi.)*

* False Alarm Rate (FAR): 1 false-alarm per day
* Minimum detectable target radial velocity: 0.37 km/h (0.23 mph)
* HP version fitted with W20S antennas

Coverage
* Instrumented maximum range: 2, 5, 8, 16 or 32 km (1.2, 3.1, 5.0, 9.9 or 19.9 mi.)
* Instrumented minimum range: less than 10 m (33 ft.)
* Azimuth scan angle: 90° horizontal e-scan; 360° via integrated positioner
* Elevation beam: 20° vertical elevation beamwidth
* Elevation adjustment: +10° to -10° (manual) or +5° to -9° (motorised option)
* Fastest scan time (for 90°): 1 s
* Fastest 'scan & pan' time (for 360°): 20 s

Target Output & Identification
* Data format: QZ (custom, open-standard data format) or XML over TCP/IP
*  Target output port: available for cueing of pan/tilt-mounted cameras and thermal imagers
* Doppler audio modes: optional
* Connectivity & Software
* Main I/O interfaces (for radar control and target data): 10/100 Ethernet network interface
* Auxiliary I/O interfaces: RS-232 and RS-422 control lines, opto-isolated control/status inputs and isolated switched contact outputs
* Software (SDK): API software library (Windows) and generic Interface Control Document (ICD) are both available to System Integrators

Electrical
* Battery/regulated-PSU input range: from 24 V to 28 V (DC)
* Vehicle supply input: 24 V (DC)
* Power consumption (from 28 V regulated-PSU)*: 70 W (average)
* Endurance*: 10 to 14 hours continuous operation from quad BB-2590 batteries
* SP version (HP version consumes 135 W)

Physical, Environmental & Reliability
* External dimensions of radar unit(s) (W x H x D)*: 666 mm x 503 mm x 128 mm** (26.2 in. x 19.8 in. x 5.0 in.**)
* Weight of Blighter Revolution 360 radar system (approx.)***:
- Wide-band (WB): 50 kg (110 lb.)
- Narrow-band (NB): 52 kg (115 lb.)
* Operating temperature: from -32° C to +60° C (from -25° F to +140° F) Note: extended operating temperature version available
* IP rating: IP66 (dust tight and protected against powerful water jets)
* MIL-HDBK-217-F: 10,000
* In-service reliability (estimated): in excess of five years (zero maintenance)
