Brazilian Air Force to get Condor Mk3 surveillance radar
The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) is modernising seven of its airspace surveillance radars covering the Amazon region.
The new system will include Raytheon’s Condor Mk3 monopulse secondary surveillance radar.
Matt Gilligan, VP of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, said: ‘The Condor Mk3 is a highly reliable and low-maintenance system that will maintain the safety of the airspace in the Amazon for many years to come.’
The Condor Mk3 consists of an automatic power control, fully configurable software, a high-duty cycle transmitter and ADS-B.
Raytheon also supplied the legacy radars that were deployed in the early 2000s as part of the Brazilian System for the Vigilance of the Amazon (SIVAM) project.
