Manportable Surveillance and Target Acquisition Radar (MSTAR)

The AN/PPS5-C Manportable Surveillance and Target Acquisition Radar (MSTAR) is a highly versatile low-power, high-performance ground surveillance radar. The MSTAR provides wide-area surveillance to a maximum range of 42 km, day or night and in all weather conditions. The MSTAR’s effectiveness has been demonstrated in both combat and peacekeeping missions, including significant use in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Testifying to its proven performance and reliability, today there are more than 1,400 MSTAR units deployed around the world.

The MSTAR system is transportable by two people, and can be put into action in less than five minutes. It is also easily integrated into larger security systems, and can be used as the anchor for other surveillance sensors. The MSTAR locates moving targets and uniquely classifies them as personnel, tracked vehicles or wheeled vehicles. The simple-to-operate man-machine interface allows for rapid self-location and surveillance area set up, and also provides for sophisticated interface support features.
