TR 70: Monopulse Tracking Receiver

Our TR70 range of monopulse tracking receivers provides instructions (digital or analogue) to the ACU to achieve very high accuracy pointing performance.The TR70 receivers are compatible with numerous modulations and can be configured in coherent mode and non-coherent mode.

Our models are designed to be compatible with different source models:

  • 2 channels or 3 channels
  • Circular or linear polarization
  • No multiplexing (no deterioration in signal noise ratio)
  • Local or distance adjustment in order to be tolerant of phase error variations
  • Capability of regulating phase and amplitude variations between each channel
  • Auto-calibration function (optional): this function permits long term stability of differential phase and amplitude between each channel – this option is only possible with ELTA DTCs
  • Auto-phasing function (optional): this function permits alignment in terms of monopulse pursuit phase

The different TR 70 models are:

  • 2 signal delivered source: Σ, Δ (ρ, θ) -> TR70B
    Cost effective because only 2 channels are used
  • 3 signal delivered source: ρ, θ, 1 cross-Polar -> TR70D
    The cross-Polar signal permits piloting from the source position
  • 3 signal source: Σ1, Σ2, Δ -> TR70E
    • Tracking is possible in right hand circular polarization (RHCP) or left hand circular polarization (LHCP)
    • Auto-diversity function: the best channel (RHCP or LHCP) is selected (manually or automatically) for carrying
  • 3 signal source: (Σ, Δ X, Δ Y ) -> TR70F
