YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar:

With the rapid advancements and modernizations of Electronic Technology and Complex Hybrid Warfare Scenario, the threat of low altitude aircraft as Helicopters, combat aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) and low altitude weapons as Cruise missile has increased considerably.

Usually, the low-altitude aerial combat and surveillance aircraft and low-altitude weapons often enter the air space of rival countries to attack on each other Ground and Air Defense Systems.

It is important to mention that in the Gulf and Middle East War, such low altitude and ultra low altitude aircraft and weapons played an important role in disrupting and targeting the enemy moving convoys and air defense systems.

While countries continue to develop the low altitude high performance two dimensional radar, the need to develop the three dimensional to detect the low and ultra low altitude weapons and aircraft has emerged than ever before.

In order to compensate this loop hole, PAKISTAN’s Iron Brother CHINA has developed the highly maneuverable YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar System.

The YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar System is basically a low and medium altitude target detection and surveillance radar that can also be used as a Surface to Air Missile (SAM) target indicator and Anti-Aircraft Artillery Force.

The YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar System is equipped with the new Giga Flops Digital Signal Processor and it is capable of Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) processing and Digital Moving Target Indication (DMTI).

The YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar System can easily detect the low and medium altitude aircraft, Gunship Helicopters and low-altitude Cruise Missiles.

The YLC-18A Long Range Three Dimension Low Altitude Blind Compensation Radar System is characterized by the high maneuverability and high speed technology, which can be ready on a short notice. The Radar Antenna can easily be elevated in seconds and starts high-speed 360 rotation for the detection of any potential low or medium altitude targets.
