OVERVIEW: The RAT-31 is Long Range 3D Air Defence Radar, in service or on delivery to a large number of NATO/European and extra European countries, both in fixed (DL) or transportable configuration (DL/M). The current production of these systems carries the highest maturity and technological level.
DETAILS: The radar can be controlled through the local radar management console or through a remote console. The mechanical configuration is designed to facilitate assembly/disassembly on battlefield, to provide an increased survivability. The RAT 31 DL/M Radar systems, consisting of a foldable antenna and a shelter, both in two ISO 20 ft packages, can be transported in one A400M type aircraft as well as on truck and rail. This configuration allows for a high degree of mobility and fast deployment/re-deployment of the system, which is carried out autonomously, without external cranes or other on-site technical support, also on unprepared sites.
