Q-par Angus Ltd has produced both primary and secondary radar, operating from HF to EHF, metre to sub-millimetre wavelengths, for civil and military users. Host platforms have included ground (man-portable), sea (ship and submarine), airborne (fast jet, rotary wing/helicopter, balloon, UAV, HAP) and space-based systems. Radar targets include stationary and dynamic objects, both real and synthetic, in real and representative environments.
The principle of location and ranging of remote targets by radar has been used for over a century since early experiments by Hulsmeyer in 1904. Radar was developed mainly for military applications and considerable advance was prompted by human conflicts throughout the world. However, civil applications of radar technology are diverse and present many challenging technical problems. Q-par Angus Ltd has considerable experience of diverse radar applications for both military and civil users.
Q-par Angus has developed a high resolution dual fan beam antenna assembly for use at 94 GHz complete with a high accuracy turning gear. This radar is capable of detecting very small objects at considerable distance, and has many applications in surveillance and homeland security. The antenna assembly has been designed for FMCW radar applications.
