Patria MUSCL passive radar system is a resilient, covert and easily deployable air surveillance system. The system provides affordable area and point surveillance for various applications, such as military air surveillance, drone detection, counter artillery sensor, border control and critical infrastructure protection.
The system exploits FM radio and DVB-T/T2 TV broadcasting signals as illuminators of opportunity, either separately or both signals simultaneously providing sector coverage of up to 360°.
Passive Coherent Location (PCL) technology is used to detect, locate and track targets. Therefore, the system does not produce a signal footprint making it practically invisible for adversaries’ signal intelligence and anti-radiation missiles as well as enabling safe deployments and use in urban areas.
