Counterfire/Weapon Location Radars

LCMR Counterfire Radars

There is no other counterfire radar in the world as small, light and affordable as the Lightweight Counter-Mortar Radar (LCMR).

The LCMR family of systems provides continuous 3-D, 360-degree surveillance and 3-D rocket, artillery and mortar (RAM) location using a non-rotating, electronically steered antenna. The radar’s track-while-scan capability allows for the simultaneous detection and tracking of multiple threats fired from separate locations. Once a RAM threat is detected, the radar sends an early warning message indicating that a round is incoming. After sufficient data is collected to enable an accurate point of origin, the weapon’s location is reported back for a counterfire response from any integrated system."

Today, more than 1,000 LCMR systems have been procured by the U.S. and its allies, making it the most widely fielded counterfire radar in the world. These lifesaving systems share the following benefits:

  • Low lifecycle cost
  • Unattended remote operation
  • Easily transportable with rapid emplacement in challenging locations
  • Ruggedized with no moving parts for minimal maintenance
  • Rooftop, tower, tripod or vehicle mountable
  • Network ready for integration with FAAD network
  • Capable of fulfilling multiple missions simultaneously
