The Coast Watcher 200 is an HF radar using surface wave propagation, a radar technology entirely developed by ONERA, well-known French aerospace lab. Unlike conventional radars, the detection is not limited to radar horizon. Coast watcher 200 can therefore detect targets over 200 km in an azimuth sector of 90 degrees.


Universal interfacing with existing systems

The Coast Watcher family is made of an open-architecture based on COTS elements, leading to a low-cost radar production and a universal interfacing with all existing systems in operation today. Moreover, this universal interfacing will allow you to perform an easy integration of your radar in a future larger system you might think of.
