Rheinmetall has unveiled the Oerlikon AESA Multi-Mission Radar (AMMR), the company’s latest radar system, which is now ready for series production.
The Oerlikon AMMR responds to highly challenging current and emerging short- and very short-range aerial threats. It successfully detects and processes mini- and micro-Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs); incoming rockets, artillery and mortars engaging in high angle attacks; and air/surface weapons and cruise missiles. Using adaptive full digital beamforming techniques in the S-band, Oerlikon AMMR automatically detects, classifies and tracks the full spectrum of aerial threats.
Rheinmetall Italia’s Oerlikon AMMR is a state-of-the-art modular radar offering superior performance and ease of operation as well as integration into a wide range of platforms. It can track and classify multiple threats simultaneously, and is designed to operate in stationary mode or on the move, under gruelling environmental and jamming conditions.
The radar features cutting-edge electronic counter-countermeasures and is fully software defined, with a configuration capable of adapting to the specific operational scenario. It can be easily upgraded in future to keep pace with evolving threat scenarios.
