Radar Antenna Monitor
Antenna Monitor Antenna Monitor Android App

This system was designed for the Taiwan Air Force (Republic of China) to monitor subsystems inside of the radar antenna.


The Antenna Monitor added comprehensive remote monitoring of subsystems inside of the HADR antenna. Temperature, pressure, and flow rate sensors were added to monitor status of the antenna cooling system. Programmable fault limits prevent operation in the event of a cooling system failure, and time trending is used to detect degradation of performance and trigger preventative maintenance. A vibration monitor predicts mechanical failures in the coolant pump and heat exchanger fan to allow for preventative maintenance and reduced down time.

A companion Android application allows users to monitor the status of the antenna using a tablet device via a Bluetooth interface.
