"ARTHUR" is a mobile, stand-alone
weapon locating and artillery fire control radar. ARTHUR
is designed to be operated in severe ECM environments, and uses a phased
array antenna with techniques to suppress clutter and
bird echoes. ARTHUR automatically detects shells from
mortars, tube- and rocket artillery. The exact weapon
position of the artillery is determined from measured
ballistic data which is also used to estimate the impact
area of both incoming and outgoing shells. Positioning of
the system will be made by GPS and digitised maps. Data from the radar is
automatically transmitted to a combat centre through an
integrated command, control, communication and
information (C3I) system, where the information is
further evaluated and in hostile situations used to
direct counter-battery fire.
The radar is effective from 3 to 40 kilometres. It´s
capable of targeting 8 targets simultaneously and tracks
up to 100 targets per minute.
The system, of which 6 were
acquired, was officially handed over on May 9th 2000 at a
ceremony at the Oksboel Training Area.
