Weapon Locating Radar (WLR)
Weapon Locating Radar (WLR) is an electronically scanned phased array radar. The radar automatically locates hostile artillery, mortars and rocket launchers and tracks friendly fire to locate the impact point of friendly artillery fire to issue necessary corrections. The radar is designed to detect projectiles with small cross section across the battle space horizon, and has the capability to handle simultaneous fire from weapons deployed at multiple locations. The radar uses advanced signal processing techniques for detection and tracking projectiles in the presence of ground, weather clutter and other forms of interference in EW scenario. Algorithms for trajectory computation take environmental parameters into consideration while estimating both launch and impact points for desired accuracy. The radar is designed for high mobility, quick deployment and decamp. The physical profile consists of radar shelter, antenna and cooling mechanisms which are placed on a slewable platform. System is designed to survive physical rigours of battlefield and soft hostile electronic warfare.
