About Solid-State technology
Solid-State is a technology that uses electronic components instead of a magnetron to generate microwaves. This technology consumes much less power, does not wear out and does not require any particular maintenance, significantly reducing operating costs. Finally, there is no pre-heating time and the start is much faster than with a magnetron.
In short, a Solid-State Radar is a more environmentally friendly Radar that requires less maintenance while delivering the same performance as its magnetron counterpart.
