P-18PL radar won the 2nd place in the "Innovations for Security and Defense" 2023 competition
P-18PL radar, developed by a consortium composed of PIT-RADWAR SA (leader) and Wojskowa Akademia Techniczna, took 2nd place in the "Innovations for Security and Defense" competition for the best projects described in the catalog: Innovations - Implementations - Security - Defense 2023.
The competition, organized by portal-mundurowy.pl, was held under the honorary patronage of Jacek Siewiera, Head of Biuro Bezpieczeństwa Narodowego, and Jacek Orzeł, acting as Director of Narodowe Centrum Badań i Rozwoju.
The competition was attended by 40 solutions described in the latest catalog: Innovations - Implementations - Security - Defense. According to the Organizer, these are the most interesting proposals from state and private companies, universities or research and development centers, not necessarily related to the country's defense potential.
P-18PL is a three-coordinate long-range radar. Its task is to indicate targets for anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense. Phase scanning of space in two planes allows you to determine the distance, azimuth and height of the detected object. Such abilities result from the use of AESA antenna (Active Electronically Scanned Array). The radar detects objects made using stealth solutions.
