L-band 2D surveillance radar
The system also provides for a combined air picture derived from primary radar and IFF, as well as a Command and Control system for effective Air Defence Control operation.
A number of ESR 220’s have been delivered to the South African Army. The high mobility nature of the system, which is transported on an all-terrain 8×8 transporter, coupled to the battlefield-specific local warning sensor design, make the system a pivotal element of the South African Army Ground-based Air Defence System.
