MINIATURE DESIGN, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION
A radar altimeter is a low power radar system that measures the distance from the platform to the terrain directly beneath it and provides AGL (Above Ground Level) height. Like other radar devices they transmit electromagnetic waves and measure the round-trip time delay to earth’s surface to determine distance (i.e. height) from the air or space borne sensor.
With its miniature design and low power consumption features, CRA Radar Altimeter Family of Meteksan provides an efficient workload planning opportunity in any air platform. CRA Radar Altimeters which can measure precisely up to 2500/5000 feet altitude, provide sensitive data even on platforms with high speed and high maneuverability and working in operations such take-off/landing, low flight, and ground-referenced navigation on different earth structures, including offshore operations.
FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH MILITARY STANDARDS
CRA Radar Altimeters with low output power, operation in a wide frequency band and low probability of Intercept (LPI) with power control mechanism which are automatically adjusted according to altitude, offers high availability with in-unit test features that operates during the opening, periodically on duty and depending on the operator’s request.
CRA Radar Altimeters designed, developed and produced as fully compatible with military standards; have been successfully passed and qualified within environmental conditions (MIL-STD-810F), EMI/EMC (MIL-STD-461E) and flight tests.
Meteksan Defence gained a great deal of knowledge and experience after starting to study this technology for the first time to meet the needs of Turkish Defence Industry. Since then, with our high valued radar altimeter solutions, our company is the only national supplier for Turkish Armed Forces and supplier for several platforms in the international market.
