- The radar is capable of detecting very small and low flying targets.
- The system employs state of the art Active Phased Array Technology with Digital Beam Formatting distributed Digital Receivers and IFF Mark XII
- The Radar System, power & cooling systems, operator shelter, communication equipment etc. is conﬁgured on two High Mobility Vehicles.
- The Radar can be deployed in plain lands, deserts and in the mountain regions for the purpose of tactical early warning for Ground-based Weapon Systems.
- With advanced signal processor and data processing systems combined with digital multi-beam processing, the radar can perform multiple functions, through multiple target tracking and target acquisition.
- ADTCR gives a true air picture with precise target parameters including the target range, height, speed, and IFF status.
- The radar is fully performable through and efficient Man-machine interface from the operator workstation and also from the remote display.

- The system is designed for survivability in intense environmental and EW conditions, and the operations cabin is protected against nuclear, biological and Chemical weapons.
- Rotating Active Phased Array with Digital Beam Forming
- Electronic scanning in Azimuth and elevation
- Distributed multiple Transmit/Receive modules based architecture
- Multifunction capability with advanced signal and data processor
