New Military Radar Systems - 2D

This covers radars produced by Marconi after 1950 including those taken over from AEI.

 

Type 80 (although not a Marconi design it did influence our development work so should be mentioned)

  

here and here

 

 


 

Type 82 Orange Yeoman

S band surveillance with height finding

 


 

Type 83 Yellow River

Mobile 4GHz and 10GHz tracking and illuminating radar for Bloodhound Mk.1. Narrative by a REME technician 

 

 

 

Type 84

L band, very long range surveillance, designed to use a 5 MW magnetron Type M565 produced by EEV at Waterhouse Lane.

 

 

This pic shows a T84 at Bishopscourt in Northern Ireland. The turntable is either being installed or changed because there is an auxiliary support frame that the upper part of the antenna is resting on. This equipment was originally installed at Bawdsey but moved late 1960s or early 1970s. It's probably post 1970 because the SSR antenna is on top of the antenna (original configuration was a hog trough type mounted below the primary hornstack.
