The radar is a versatile, cost-effective solution offering a multitude of advantages making it an ideal choice for border guard, battlefield surveillance, civilian and military installation security and combat operations duties.

As a result of its low weight and small dimensions, the AT PGRSR can be carried in backpacks by two-man teams. It is also mountable on vehicles and on fixed posts as needed. AT PGSR can be used as a standalone unit or in network of 2-3 radars up to several dozen sensors, as required by the specifics of the surveillance scenario.

The highly advanced DSP technologies integrated in AT PGSR differentiate between moving and stationary targets, determine the exact parameters of the detected targets and control the adaptive detection during changing environmental conditions. The DSP algorithms provide information in ’ready to display’ format for the operator unit or remote control centre.

The operation of the AT PGSR is controlled from the operator unit or command centre. The radar’s control software is capable of utilizing different map formats and displaying the detected targets over the map. The software is designed in a user friendly way. Small icons represent the different functions and make learning easy even for untrained users. The radar can be set up and made
ready for operation in five minutes. It is easy to maintain and operate with minimal need for special training. The software supports the integration of
this single radar into complex multi-sensor systems.

The radar is very durable, capable of withstanding a wide range of  environmental factors and is also very reliable, with only a minimal chance of
malfunctioning (MTBF > 10000 hours).

Due to its operating principles AT PGSR has minimal possibility of being jammed or intercepted (LPI-Low Probability of Intercept).
