Radar Antenna Testing

Radar System Tester

RST Unit

RST is a convenient and reliable way to test various types of radar antennas in a surveillance system. It is connected directly to a radar for the recording of radar data for later graphical display with the RST software. It is a portable hand held unit which is supplied in a ruggedized carry case.


The RST is in use in several Civil and Military Aviation Agencies, including the FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration).
