OVERVIEW: The JY-11 is a mobile low-to-medium altitude 3-D surveillance radar operating in the E/F-band.
DETAILS: The JY-11 is a modern, highly mobile radar with an integrated D-band IFF sub-system. It is intended to operate as a surveillance gap-filling system, and capable of military air traffic control (ATC). It has frequency-scanning and target indication capabilities. The JY-11 mechanically scans in azimuth and frequency scans in elevation where it has five groups of beams: one long range and four medium range groups. The five groups forming a total of 14 electronically scanned beams providing 30º of vertical cover. Facilities and capabilities include a narrow-beam, low sidelobe antenna with dual, slow-wave structure enabling the radar to operate over two sub-frequency bands separated by 100 MHz, which overcomes the disadvantage of weak anti-active jamming capability in a single band.
Frequency: 2-4 GHz (E/F Band (NATO), S Band (IEEE))) Power output: unknown kW(average); unknown MW (peak) PRF: unknown Range Resolution: 200 m (range), 2 degrees azimuth On/Off time: unknown Deploy/Stow Time unknown min
