Can anybody help me to find information about locations of real world coastal radar sites? I guess there will be some military radar chains along the coasts, but unlike NATINADS I am unable to find info on naval radar sites.
Currently focusing on Europe and bordering Africa.

I am talking about primary radar, no AIS system.

Never found a site with a listing with coordinates.

I've been looking at coast guard stations and things like that as of late. Port facilities tend to have something close as well. You can sometimes see the radars in pictures etc.

Whenever I travel to interesting regions, I can't avoid looking out for all kind of potential military installations. Unfortunately there are so many fences. And most signs on these fences don't offer any hint on the purpose of the site.

Yes, the attentive traveler can find a lot, but especially regarding naval radar sites, it is hard to tell whether it is civilian or military. I am not even certain there is a coastal fixed military radar system at all. I guess there has to be, but so far found zero.

I live a few blocks from the coast and coastal sites in the US don't seem that sensitive and most radars look like their shipborne counterparts. Just google coastal surveillance and you should see a million Furuno's, Decca etc.

Except for this one It's about 15 minutes away and always see it crossing the Bridge

Think is looks a little farther than an nav radar

Phased arrays not only look impressive, they also mostly guarantee that it is a military facility. If I ever come across something like that, I will certainly post it here.
Did the googling you mentioned already before, will continue to keep eyes open and report anything of apparent value. Thanks!

Yeah its the Cape Cod Pave Paws. Definitely a sensitive military site

Good luck with your IMINT stuff.

It's got its own electrical sub station - can't imagine what the electricity bill to run that baby is

Pilgrim Nuclear Plant is a couple of miles from here although about to be shut down in the next couple years

Lot of ways to get cooked around here.
