Vertical Pattern


The dBs 560 is an Omni-directional broadband, 12 element, Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) sidelobe supression, collinear dipole phased array designed specifically for use with the ASR-3 Radar. It exhibits very low side lobe levels and negative angle radiation (minimizes multipath). The above the horizon null filled pattern minimizes the radiated cone of silence and optimizes the sidelobe suppression performance of the Radar System. The antenna handles input power to 4,000 watts at standard SSR pulse duty cycle and operates over its entire frequency range with an input VSWR at 50 ohm of less than 2.0:1.

This antenna provides vertically polarized, omni-directional coverage with main beam of radiation uptilted to minimize the effects of ground reflections.

The array is enclosed and effectively weatherproofed within a lightweight, small diameter filament wound and ground smooth fiberglass radome for prolonged trouble free use under severe environmental conditions.
