Track and Identify at a Range of 42 km

The AN/PPS-5C Manportable Surveillance and Target Acquisition Radar (MSTAR) is a highly versatile low-power, high-performance ground surveillance radar. The MSTAR provides wide-area surveillance to a maximum range of 42 km, day or night and in all weather conditions. The MSTAR’s effectiveness has been demonstrated in both combat and peacekeeping missions, including significant use in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today there are more than 1,800 MSTAR units deployed
around the world.

The MSTAR system is transportable by two people, and can be put into action in less than five minutes. It is also easily integrated into larger security systems, and can be used as the anchor for other surveillance sensors. The MSTAR locates moving targets and uniquely classifies them as personnel, tracked vehicles or wheeled vehicles. The simple-to-operate man-machine interface allows for rapid self-location and surveillance area set up, and also
provides for sophisticated interface support features.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Wide area, long-range surveillance sensor
  • Accurate target location
  • “Slew-to-cue” other optical sensor platforms
  • Target data output for data fusion
  • Automated data entry
  • Reduced sensor-to-shooter timelines
  • Surveillance from 100 m to 42 km
  • Multiple sector selection 200 to 6,400 mils continuous
  • Acquisition (zoom) mode 1.5 km by 1.5 km window
  • Fall-of-shot first round artillery correction to 15 km
