The 96L6E all-altitude target acquisition radar can detect various air targets, including stealth ones, and high precision weapons within a wide altitude-speed envelope. Through adaptive use of wideband signals and multi-frequency operation, the radar efficiently acquires low-, medium- and high-altitude targets under ECM conditions, with few false alarms.
