Rapid airborne mobility combined with long range early warning radar

Flying at high altitude, Erieye covers a much wider area than a conventional ground-based sensor system does. The effective surveillance area is over 500,000 sq. km horizontally and over 60,000 ft. vertically. Sea coverage is only limited by the horizon and everything from fighter aircraft, hovering helicopters, cruise missiles and Jet Ski-sized sea targets can be detected and tracked. The system delivers a reliable flow of precise information, irrespective of atmospheric and clutter conditions.

Proven Erieye radar

The radar is based on Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology, enabling the radar energy to be adjusted according to the situation – it can be used over an extensive area or concentrated within a smaller prioritised area. The radar detects and tracks objects
quickly with high precision and a high update rate. S-band technology ensures top performance in all weather conditions.
