Active radar reflector Principle
The active radar reflector is composed of two antennas and a microwave frequency amplification chain. The signal the receiving antenna picks up is amplified and retransmitted to a level corresponding to the desired radar cross-section, or RCS. In option, this system generates Doppler effects.
Theses devices operate within X and Ku bands and works whether the radar polarization is circular or rectilinear. The RCS level and the Doppler effect can be set according to the customer’s needs.
Military and civil applications
Thanks to its compact and lightweight design, ARES can be easily integrated on a large range of aerial, land and naval targets for military training purposes involving radar-guided firing.
The TARGET SIMULATOR meets the needs of civil and military applications in the fields of security and radar surveillance as well as in the fields of radar qualification and calibration.
