    (Radar Warning Receiver)

    레이다 경보수신기(RWR) 제품
    RWR is made up of two main components: i) radar warning receiving sensor which detects the radar signal emissions from adversary’s radar systems and transmits the threat information to aircraft’s survival systems, and ii)EWC(Electronic Warfare Computer) which provides integrated management of identified threats. RWR provides high precision direction finding information, close analysis and alert on radar threat signals, integrated identification of threat information, effective responses to them, control of survival equipment and integrated management thereof.
    Furthermore, based on the capabilities of aircraft’s integrated survival systems(radar threat response and integrated threat response system), RWC can be utilized for ELINT(Electronic Intelligence).
    • High precision direction finding information
    • Precise analysis of radar threat signals and alert
    • Integrated identification of threat information and effective response
    • Control and integrated management of survival equipment (LWR, MWR, CMDS, etc.)
  • TADS
