Air Forces of Azerbaijan adopted LTR-25 Lanza radars manufactured by Spanish company Indra Sistemas.
The radar was adopted on October 15, told press service of MOD of Azerbaijan.
On October 15, the Minister of Defense of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Colonel General Zakir Hasanov and the leadership of the ministry took part in the opening of a control point of the most advanced multifunctional Air Force Radar Station, designed to strengthen control over the country’s airspace and timely detect air targets.
The Minister of Defense inquired about the operational characteristics of the equipment and technical facilities installed at the Radar Station Control Point.
The LTR-25 is a state-of-the-art, full solid-state three dimensional (3D) long range radar developed by Indra, which incorporates years of experience together with the latest technological advances.
The system also includes an Identifier Friend or Foe and Secondary Surveillance Radar (IFF/SSR), capable of providing target identification through interrogation and automatic processing of transponders replies in modes 1, 2, 3/A, C, 4, S and 5. The LTR-25 integrates a 3D Primary Surveillance Radar (SR) based on a pencil beam architecture which provides long range coverage.
The main function of the SR is the detection of non-cooperative aircrafts within the instrumented coverage volume, even under adverse conditions, including clutter and ECM environment.
Target coordinates provided by the LTR-25 include target altitude (3D position).
The LTR-25 has been designed as a tactical deployable radar, with the capability of being transported by a variety of means, (road, air – aircraft or helicopter rail or sea).
All the LTR-25 associated equipment is completely integrated, so that all operative, transportable and deployable capabilities of the system are maintained.
