The CEAFAR GBMMR leverages existing technology to provide an active phased array surveillance and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) capability for land-based operations.
GBMMR is suitable for deployment by road, rail or air. The system operates from portable or fixed power sources enabling mobile operation and offers increased operational flexibility at fixed sites through its rapid set up and tear down.
A range of military and civil applications
The GBMMR array utilises CEA’s unique scalable tile-based architecture enabling the system to be matched to a range of military and civil applications that include:
Land-based air surveillance
Including protective surveillance of key land-based assets such as defence facilities, airports and forward operating bases.
Mobile battlefield and airspace surveillance
Integrated to a local Command & Control (C2) suite for inputs to:
o Ground Surveillance
o Counter Rockets, Artillery and Mortars (C-RAM)
o Weapon Location and
o Ground Based Air and Missile Defence.
Air traffic control
Including terminal area radar and en route monitoring with integrated IFF (all modes)
Surface search and coastal surveillance
Including drug and customs surveillance operations, border intrusions, search & rescue operations and low level hostilities; and
Weather monitoring radar
For the timely observation/prediction of wind and precipitation conditions, weather avoidance (for aircraft) and clear-air turbulence detection.
The features of the radar include:
high track update rate
high track accuracy, fire control quality on all tracks
pulse Doppler operation – very high performance in clutter
no in-mission maintenance – highly parallel architecture allows failures to be managed whilst deployed
reduced Total Cost of Ownership through minimal consumables and in-field maintenance requirements
rapid deployment and very low deployable infrastructure requirements
simultaneous multi-mode operation with no cone of silence
high immunity to interference and electronic attack
integrated track management and data fusion
full IFF integration - including modes 5 & S
remote or local operation
very high availability
