<summary>Pleasse add Indra Long Tactical Range LTR-25 radar for UK and Spain </summary>
<detail> Last year, the DE&S Air Defence and Electronic Warfare Systems team awarded a £13.1 million contract to Indra to produce their Lanza Long Tactical Range 25 radar for the RAF’s Battlespace Management Force. Now the radar has arrived in the UK it will undergo extensive trials and is due to be accepted into service with the RAF by mid-2021.
The LTR-25 is a state-of-the-art, full solid-state three dimensional (3D) long range radar developed by Indra, which incorporates years of experience together with the latest technological advances. It is a fully digital radar operating in L band with an instrumental range exceeding 250 nautical miles, operationally deployable in less than two hours.
The system also includes an Identifier Friend or Foe and Secondary Surveillance Radar (IFF/SSR), capable of providing target identification through interrogation and automatic processing of transponders replies in modes 1, 2, 3/A, C, 4, S and 5. The LTR-25 integrates a 3D Primary Surveillance Radar (SR) based on a pencil beam architecture which provides long range coverage.
The main function of the SR is the detection of non-cooperative aircrafts within the instrumented coverage volume, even under adverse conditions, including clutter and ECM environment. Target coordinates provided by the LTR-25 include target altitude (3D position).
The LTR-25 has been designed as a tactical deployable radar, with the capability of being transported by a variety of means, (road, air – aircraft or helicopter rail or sea). All the LTR-25 associated equipment is completely integrated, so that all operative, transportable and deployable capabilities of the system are maintained.
Each LTR-25 unit is composed of a primary radar integrated with a secondary radar and an operation and power generation shelter. The system has been designed to facilitate transportability and deployment in non-prepared sites: the full system could be accommodated either into one single Hércules C130-type aircraft or in two trucks.</detail>
According to Indra, the Spanish Air Force also uses this radar.
