RADAR Systems

Leader in design and development of rugged, high-performance RADAR Electronics, RADAR subsystems and RADAR systems for Data Acquisition and Signal Processing systems like RPUs, Transmit-Receive Modules (TRMs), Receivers, Synthesizers and Data Recorders.


RADAR systems use electromagnetic waves to detect the location and distance of an object from the point where the RADAR is placed. RADAR systems work by radiating energy into space and monitoring the reflected signal from objects present in space. Mistral provides design and development services for building high-performing Surveillance RADAR Systems and RADAR Electronics for aerospace and defense applications. Mistral’s RADAR Systems and RADAR Electronics expertise utilize a broad range of technologies covering microwave, mixed signal and high-speed digital designs.

Many of the RADAR Electronics and RADAR systems designed by Mistral have been deployed in a wide range of defense and aerospace applications including ground-based, ship and airborne radar systems. Our RADAR systems utilize a broad range of technologies including mixed signal, high-speed digital, radio frequency (RF) and specialized electro-optics (EO).  Mistral’s RADAR Electronics and RADAR systems are backed by in-house research and development operations that help ensure that the solutions offered incorporate and remain at the leading edge of signal processing technology. Mistral’s design services for RADAR Systems are complemented by our global partnership with leading organizations specializing in defense electronics. These include COTS hardware and software leaders like Curtiss Wright Defense, Elma Electronics and Wind River Systems. Mistral’s RADAR subsystems, RADAR systems and RADAR Electronics designs are used in a wide range of commercial, military and paramilitary systems including ground-based, ship and airborne radar systems.

We provide comprehensive design, development and integration services for RADAR Electronics and systems, from initial prototyping through low volume production with the agility to adapt to changing customer requirements throughout the life-cycle. Mistral’s RADAR Electronics and System designs are backed by in-house research and development operations that help ensure that the solutions offered incorporate and remain at the leading edge of signal processing technology.
