Radar Performance Monitor

The Ranatec RI 900 Radar Performance Monitor is a state-of-the-art, reliable and versatile, high precision, in-service Radar Performance Monitoring System.

An RI 900 Radar Performance Monitoring System installation includes:

  • An RF Head, fitted between the ASR transmit/receive diplexer and the antenna
  • A selection of Peak Power Sensors and Noise Sources, tailored to the actual measurement demand and integrated into the RF Head
  • A Radar Performance Monitor mainframe, hosting up to 4 plug-in units and operated from a 7’’ touchscreen – or remotely
  • A set of plug-in units, to match the selection of Power Detectors and Noise Sources

The Radar Performance Monitoring System is connected to the radar and is active during normal radar operation. It measures and reports online measurement results for both the transmitter- and receiver system.

The RI 900 Radar Performance Monitor is the 4th generation monitor for radar performance test from Ranatec AB. It is fully backwards compatible with its predecessor RM9000 and adds new features and higher performance.
