We are a key integrator and subcontractor of MADR (Mobile Air Defence Radar) 3D radars. These are implemented in the Czech Armed Forces’ air defence structures in cooperation with the manufacturer, the Israeli company ELTA.
The delivery and installation involves 8 sets of medium range mobile 3D radars with a detection mode for small, low-flying and cooperating and non-cooperating air targets with the transmission of information in formats suitable for a ground air defence fire control system.
We provide support for the installation and integration of radars into certified information systems. We produce hi-tech DTRM and DRM modules, which are used in the production of MADR radars.
We also provide logistical support during user training, installation, integration, testing and delivery to the end user and during warranty periods.
Our long-term cooperation in supplying the Czech Armed Forces with military equipment is an essential prerequisite for successfully implementing a project of a similar scale. RETIA was also selected as the CAF service partner for the entire life cycle of the equipment.
When protecting borders, ReGUARD ensures that no person, vehicle or drone crosses the border without the radar operator knowing. Not only does ReGUARD give an early warning and valuable reaction time to an effective response, but it also protects a wide strip of territory. When ReGUARD is suitably located, its range covers up to 22 km of border in the horizontal plane and can also detect possible threats up to 8 km behind it.
In an anti-drone system
ReGUARD can also be used as the radar sensor in an anti-drone system, where it detects LSS up to a distance of 18 km. Its highly accurate data on a target’s position can also be used to guide the reaction to the drone. Every anti-drone solution must have a radar sensor like ReGUARD if it wants to provide full protection.
Use in an air defence system
The highly accurate radar data generated by ReGUARD, thanks to its high technological sophistication, helps to create a very efficient air defence system when combined with a powerful weapons system, the integration of this data and an efficient system for transferring it.
Protecting important buildings
The increasing cases of UAV intruding into the grounds of nuclear power plants, industrial or development facilities shows just how inadequate the protection against this type of threat is. Effective detection makes it possible to respond in time and prevent material and human loss. ReGUARD can pinpoint a small commercial drone at a distance of 6 km, which is its full range when flying at maximum speed. This means the user gains a valuable 15 minutes to respond to the threat.
Airports are one of the most vulnerable facilities as far as small UAV are concerned. Even if unintentional, simply being present in the airport’s reserved area disrupts its operation and leads to significant economic losses. Unfortunately, there are also examples of the deliberate misuse of drones for terrorist acts, e.g. the threat of deliberately flying a drone into an aircraft engine at takeoff is horrifying. With ReGUARD, airport security units acquire a tool that allows them to prevent both minor and completely irreparable damage. In addition, thanks to full records on the flight paths of all drones within range, it makes it very easy to find a drone user who might have posed a risk to running the airport. Last but not least, ReGUARD is highly efficient in terms of its range. By using just one sensor it is able to cover almost the entire controlled traffic region (CTR) of the airport.
