Multi-Mode Ground Surveillance Radar

WatchGuard (ENA-2180) is a family of operationally-proven radars that provide tactical ground surveillance capabilities to security and defense forces. The high-performance radars can be installed at fixed sites, integrated into networked systems to protect borders, bases, airports and other critical infrastructures. Lightweight, portable, and quick to set-up, the radars, cables, power supply and travel case can be configured as a man-packable solution for mobile forces.

Operating in X-Band, the pulse-Doppler radars employ Active Electronically Scanning Array (AESA) technology for optimized performance and reliability. The radar’s innovative design incorporates a single solid state module with no wiring or moving parts, and is controlled by a user friendly Command and Control unit. With powerful signal processing capabilities, WatchGuard can perform electronic scanning or staring, providing both wide area coverage and targeting of threats at long distances with the ability to simultaneously track-while-scan over 300 targets. The all-weather systems includes an internal GPS used for detailed mapping. Target data (track and speed) is displayed on a map and provides critical assistance to field commanders and remote decision-makers. Optional EO camera integration can enhance target classification.

Intelligent Modular System

WatchGuard radars are modular, with the ability to connect two panels to extend the azimuth coverage to 180°. In addition, extended elevation configuration provides coverage of up to 30°. Panels can be positioned to provide 90° azimuth or perpendicular to one another providing wider coverage but utilizing the same radar module. The radars can be networked with one another offering an extended radar coverage.

The radar operates in two search modes:
