 The sixth generation of British aircraft will be equipped with super radar, and the data volume is more than ten thousand times that of the early radar


The radar system, known as the multi-functional radio frequency system (mfrfs), will also integrate the ability to jam enemy radars, making the enemys strike weapons blinded.. Mfrfs is an active electronic scanning array (aese) radar, which is very common in the fourth and fifth generation fighters. It uses hundreds of micro radar module matrix to replace the traditional butterfly radar antenna.

In recent years, the aese radar system has been developed. This radar consists of a matrix of hundreds of micro radar modules to Guide the direction of radio waves, rather than physically turning the radar antenna to the target. With aese radar, the beam can move very quickly, which allows the radar to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as monitoring the flight path of an aircraft while monitoring the sea target.

The RAF said that the mfrfs radar is only one tenth the size of existing radars, but it is four times as accurate. The amount of data collected by this radar per second is equivalent to the Internet traffic of the entire city of Edinburgh (Edinburgh has 482000 people). Then, the powerful signal processor will use radar data to draw battlefield images for pilots to display battlefield information such as friendly equipment, enemy fighters, ground targets and air defense systems.

In addition to its detection capabilities, the storm fighter may also be able to use its airborne radar for electronic attacks, the report said. Equipped with aese radar, modern fighters can carry out electronic attack missions alone. For example, the F-35 fighter has been able to use its radar to carry out electronic attack tasks, including making false targets, launching network attacks, implementing jamming, etc. The storm fighter will have the possibility to carry out more complex electronic attack missions through a stronger radar system.
