Portable Early Warning Radar System ALP-300G @Aselsan

Aselsan has announced the first delivery of the Portable Early Warning Radar System ALP-300G to the Turkish armed forces.

The ALP-300G, Turkey’s longest-range radar, monitors the airspace with complete coverage. Featuring an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) and digital beamforming antenna infrastructure, the radar is designed for rapid deployment and assembly on tactical wheeled platforms.

Haluk Görgün, President of Türkiye’s Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB), emphasized the critical role of radar systems for battlefield and border security. He highlighted Turkey's ongoing efforts to develop advanced radars for applications such as aerial reconnaissance, surveillance, border control, naval platforms, air defense, missile systems, search and surveillance, fire control, tracking, and weapons detection. Görgün noted that Aselsan's early warning radar systems fall under the ALP family, with the newly delivered radar designated ALP-300G.

The ALP-300G boasts the ability to handle nearly 500 digital communications and process data equivalent to 81 DVDs per second. "The ALP-300G we delivered today surpasses them all in resolution, range, and accuracy," Görgün stated. The radar features more than 4,000 transmit-receive modules, ensuring operational continuity even if a module fails. Unlike rotating radars, it can receive reflections continuously without waiting for a full rotation and sends verification signals to ensure accuracy.

Developed using over 435,000 lines of code and protected by almost 20 patents, the ALP-300G can be set up in 30 minutes and provides uninterrupted communications via a radio link. Over 436 companies contributed to the radar project. Görgün highlighted the radar's extensive targets and resistance to electronic warfare, emphasizing Turkey's technological dominance and rapid response capabilities.

Defense Minister Yasar Güler noted that the radar system's ability to process massive amounts of data and withstand electronic warfare enables the detection and tracking of various threats over long distances. The ALP-300G’s ability to operate in a fixed position and maintain functionality even if a module fails ensures continuous and reliable performance.
