Download Datasheet

This newly developed X-band radar fully meets the all Levels of Radar Detection, recommended by the latest IALA V-128 Guidelines for Coastal surveillance and VTS applications.
It can be delivered in Basic, Standard or Advanced configurations compliant IALA N.1111 Guideline to meet virtually any customer requirement.


The high-discrimination Antenna Unit, developed and produced in house, has been designed for missions demanding high efficiency operation, extreme rotation performance against wind gusts, strength and durability in harsh environmental conditions. The pedestal is equipped with a direct drive system with an innovative coaxial torque motor allowing direct antenna rotating; this eliminates any kinematic chains and fostering remarkable improvements of performances and very high accuracy of angular detection providing true zero backlash performance.

Olympus X-band radar provides high detection performance with unique and outstanding capabilities, utilizing the availability of new Solid State technologies and high speed processor that enables fast processing and enhanced performance. The innovative Transmitter/Receiver with High Dynamic Range and Software Defined Functionality, includes video processing techniques such as Frequency Diversity, Time Diversity, CFAR and Doppler Filtering.

This makes the antenna group fully noiseless and maintenance and wear free.

The operator can remotely stop the rotation of the antenna in any position as set.

There is also a mechanical lock of the antenna allowing performing local maintenance operations in full safety and, as option, a comprehensive de-icing kit in case of operation in polar and sub-polar environments.

Olympus X-band radar provides high detection performance with unique and outstanding capabilities, utilizing the availability of new Solid State technologies and high speed processor that enables fast processing and enhanced performance. The innovative Transmitter/Receiver with High Dynamic Range and Software Defined Functionalities, includes video processing techniques such as Frequency Diversity, Time Diversity, CFAR and Doppler Filtering. It can be delivered in Up-mast Configuration. Single or Dual Redundant or Frequency Diversity Mast-Mounted or Down-mast Configuration. Its latest generation Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) can deliver different levels of transmitted power up to 400 W. The radar has been designed and built to operate reliably 24 hours all year around, with full operational performances even in the most adverse environmental conditions. The calculated intrinsic system availability is more than 99%.

Easy maintenance is an important feature of OLYMPUS.
OLYMPUS Radar System is tailored for professional customers such as Coast Guard, Port and Airport Authorities, Oil & Gas Company.

The new Antenna Group developed in house has been designed for missions that require high efficiency operation, extreme motion performance, strength and durability in harsh environmental conditions. The pedestal is equipped with a direct drive system with torque motor and high resolution encoder. Thanks to its backlash free structure, the antenna offers superior performance by providing extraordinary azimuth precision, high range resolution as well as extremely low-level noise. Olympus allows to stop the rotation of the antenna in any position set by the operator, thereby allowing to perform local maintenance operations in complete safety.
