I believe MAMBA is just the British version of ARTHUR.
Don't know if it's better/worse, or the same...
We use ARTHUR on BV206 in Norway, and the accuracy is quite impressive.
I can't give you any technical details, other than what you can find on official sites, since most of the info is classified http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...rtillery+radar
But it can certainly tell the difference between a bird and a shell..
How many birds do you know that travels over 200 meters/second..
And it doesn't need to "see" the missile/shell very long in order to calculate where it's fired from and where it's going to land.
Good to hear from an artillary expert
Too bad that you don't fight your own weapon
Yeah as of what I read on ericssons homepage it is the same, but its hard to really know, as they put it in a weird way. It seems to have the same specs, although the site I supplied first talk about 20 KM, but arthur is capable of atleast 40 KM (supposivly never versions can do 60, but that was a civil person so I doubt it holds credibility)
One thing that I have wondered (actually im wondering that right now) if the radar works as a camera lens (love taking photos so I will use this as to discribe what I mean), meaning that if the range is extended the angle it operated will be lovered? In other means the field from left to right and from highest angle to lowest, without moving the dish, will be signifigantly lowered in number?
Like a 80 mm lens might have about 40 degrees in all direction but at 300 mm this will be lowered to around 8 degrees viewing field.
Was that clear enough?`heh
