Phobos ScreenThe PHOBOS tactical threat warning system from Teledyne Defence & Space is comprised of a state of the art, high sensitivity radar warning receiver and a highly portable hand-held display device. The combination of these two elements provides the user with exceptional detection performance whilst delivering true tactical flexibility.

The system design utilises next-generation de-interleaving and emitter identification processing coupled with TD established measurement techniques to ensure outstanding performance and exceptional reliability.

4 switched ports provide instantaneous quadrant direction finding and full 360° coverage whilst the use of MIL-STD 2525 symbology ensures ease of object recognition. The hand-held display utilises a Windows CE HMI base platform and benefits from full colour VGA polar display. Both visual and audio warning facilities are also a feature of the hand-held unit.

The TDS PHOBOS has been engineered to ensure that weight, physical size and power consumption have all been kept to a minimum, and PHOBOS also offers significant reduction of each. In turn, design for manufacture has been a key driver delivering the PHOBOS at an attractively low cost base.
