American Patriot air defense system will receive a new radar

The American Patriot anti-aircraft missile system will receive a new radar. As reported "Warspot" With reference to the defensenews.com portal, Raytheon supplied the US Army with the first model of a promising radar developed as part of the LTAMDS project.


Reportedly, the new promising LTAMDS radar, although developed as part of the Patriot air defense system upgrade program, will be included in the new Integrated Air and Missile Defense System missile system, which will subsequently replace the Patriot air defense system. The Americans are not much spread about the new system, it is known that the new radar has a circular view (thanks to two additional rear installations), an increased detection range, which is enough "even for promising missiles of the air defense system."

The first radar model will be tested as part of the Patriot air defense system; by the end of 2022, Raytheon will have to deliver six pre-production radar samples for testing. The timing of the adoption of a new radar in service and the start of mass production has not yet been reported.

Previously, the American Patriot air defense system was repeatedly criticized, including for its inability to detect low-flying and small-sized air targets. The US Army hopes that with the introduction of a new radar into the air defense system, the capabilities of the complex will increase significantly.

      So poked processors that need cooling.
      According to US News, Turkey is currently negotiating the purchase by Turkey of the MIM-104 Patriot PAC-3 SAM. Air defense systems of this type provide detection, recognition and tracking of 125 air objects in the entire range of ranges and altitudes. It also provides simultaneous guidance of missiles at eight targets, three for each. The maximum firing range is 100 km. The height of the defeat of ballistic targets - up to 20 km. The probability of hitting an airplane is 0,8-0,9, and a tactical missile is 0,6-0,8 with one missile in the absence of interference. The maximum speed of the target being hit is 1600 m / s.

      Are the dimensions large for the new promising LTAMDS radar, sort of like a radar for medium-range air defense systems? Or do Americans make a request for a system comparable in performance with the S-400?

        Normal size. For accurate defeat of ballistic targets, you need to track their flight path as far as possible, much further than the range of destruction

        for a new promising radar

        The people, like the majority in the military, let's call a spade a spade.
        Not a radar, but a radar, we do not live in foreign lands ...

        Patriot is a stationary air defense, not a mobile one. It is deployed for a long time in one position. So the size is not critical at all.

        I agree with one thing that the US Army and the rest of the world are increasingly using electronics of civilian components (COTS technology). This is a global trend.
        Allows you to make a giant increase in performance and algorithms for much less money.

        I disagree with the second.
        S-300, S-400 are as mobile as the Patriot actually is.

      This is probably the whole thing. Now they are moving targets will simply blow off course and "blow" them away from the protected objects. winked

    And yes - how does a radar with an antenna located at ground level (10 km radio horizon) help in defense against low-flying targets? laughing

      In my opinion you are not the topic.
      The program has been working for a long time.
      And even in August last year, successful tests were conducted.
      When, for a low-altitude target, followed by the very scanty radars from NASAMS and Avenger, the Patriot launched an over-the-horizon launch, which was successfully aimed and destroyed the target, without the participation of its own radar.

      So learn again the part and do not try to look omniscient.

      You do not succeed.

    Americans don’t spread much about the new system,

    Stripes need to give a real new name to their product ... Schaub the customers did not have unpleasant associations.
    And so, in fact, until you understand, they will build a ground-based "shield" or they will also be tuned in on the concept that they will be the first to strike, and then there will be nothing to fly onto them ???
    It’s not clear what they thought up.

        Who are we \ them the most important ??? Politicians! So you can say that you understand what you’ve decided, they want to achieve THEY.
        Recall the SOI program !!! This was a divorce of their geopolitical opponents, the same POLITICIANS, self-confident to the extreme .... although real experts reported to them that this is not a sale of bullshit.

      It was like this. And how it will be classified.
      AN / MPQ-53

      The multifunctional radar has the main transceiver headlight, which is used when detecting, tracking and highlighting targets, tracking enemy missiles and transmitting commands. This is a grid with a spatial approach way of feeding, which consists of 5161 radiating component with ferrite phase shifters. In this case, the entire viewed area is divided into 32 sectors (each of 90 square degrees), when viewing each of them, the radar scans line by line with the headlamp beam. Scanning takes 3,2 seconds.


      5,5 wavelength range - 6,7 cm (4-6 GHz)
      Sector overview in search mode:
      azimuth from + 45 to −45 °
      by elevation 1 - 73 °
      Accompanying sector in rocket guidance mode:
      azimuth from + 55 to −55 °
      by elevation 1 - 83 °
      Detection range for ESR targets:
      0,1 m² (head of the rocket) 70 km,
      0,5 m² (rocket) - 100 km
      1,5 m² (fighter) - 130 km
      10 m² (bomber) - 180 km
      simultaneous tracking of up to 125 targets
      maximum target speed 2200 m / s
      simultaneous guidance to 6 rockets
      8-10 detection time seconds
      25 minutes deployment time
      The radar is set in the direction of the expected threat, and also maintains such a position during firing. The direction of the antenna in azimuth can be changed remotely, in the intervals between the reflections of the raids: on command from the start of control, by turning the entire radar relative to the semi-trailer.

      With what to compare, what was, how will be?

      What can only be assumed. The promotion of the LTAMDS (Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor) program, to strengthen airspace control at low altitudes in the interests of air defense and missile defense, is probably associated with the failures of Patriot in Saudi Arabia (a blow to the oil fields) and Iraq (a blow Iran based in the USA).
      detection range of small targets with an EPR of the order of 0,01 sq. m through the main antenna post can increase up to 90-100 km in comparison with 45-50 km in MPQ-65.

      Moreover, the use of individual low-noise microwave transistors based on semiconductor gallium nitride in the transmitting and transmitting modules will allow expanding the radiation pattern in the lower sector by reducing the elevation angle of the beam of the new station to -3 / -5 degrees, which will allow to detect and effectively track targets at altitudes 3 — 5 m. According to this indicator, LTAMDS will be compared with domestic radars 9С36 of Buk-M2 systems, and possibly unique low-altitude detectors Podlet-K1, adapted for operation with goals, loitering over mountainous terrain with belittling of several hundred meters. Equipping two additional stationary AFAR modules with a total azimuthal viewing sector of about 200 degrees will provide the new LTAMDS station with the ability to view the entire airspace without any delay in the rate of updating radar information, which is observed with a low-altitude detector such as Podlet-K1 or a centimeter high 96L6 detector, which is part of the S-400 Triumph air defense system.

        He made such a mistake - it’s right, due to the increase in the number of anti-missile systems, the overview in the lower sector of the AFU will expand, and not the radiation pattern - otherwise, the azimuth and elevation resolution decreases! But this simply can not be!

        SAM Patriot PAC ‑ 2 is designed to provide cover for small areas from tactical ballistic missile attacks. SAM not only deflects missiles from the target, but also completely eliminates them.
