The RAF’s Global Enablement Team used the Indra-built LTR-25 radar for surveillance of UK airspace during the aviation show event on 19 July.
The radar would normally be used to detect and track tactical ballistic missiles or unmanned aerial vehicles and provide air surveillance command and control with early warning information. It can also deliver trajectory parameters such as estimated launch point, cue point, impact, and interception.
Indra integrated systems and space director Domingo Castro said the RAF´s Lanza Radar has been designed as a tactical deployable radar, capable of being rapidly transported by air, sea, rail, and road.
“The deployments of this radar with the RAF highlights Indra’s ability to meet the needs of the most technically demanding clients and reinforces our position as one of the world’s leading radar suppliers,” he said.
The radar also incorporates technology developed in-house by Indra to mitigate the reflections and clutter caused by wind turbines and solar panels, he said.
