A limited comparison test was conducted to determine the improvement in surveillance capability between an existing Harbor Advisory Radar HAR and a prototype ANFPS-109XN-1 radar designed specifically for harbor surveillance. The FPS-109 radar is clearly superior in all areas of performance and operational flexibility. However, the HAR is an older radar system that was not operating within its rated performance envelope.
