INDRA (Indonesian Radar) -MX is a marine radar system for ships of any size and category featuring FMCW (Frequency-Modulated Continuos-Wave) technology which allows utilization of very low transmit power. It implements the latest dual atenna technology and signal processing techniques which lead to superior capability in target detection. In addition, Doppler processing is applied in INDRA-MX to allow accurate measurements of targets speed and effective suppression of sea clutter.

The very low power consumption guarantees a stable and realiable system which increased lifetime. Moreover, the radar's signals are too weak to be detected by any radar scanners making INDRA-MX an ideal silent radar for use in convert operations.
INDRA-MX is supported by user-friendly target tracking software MATA (Maritime Tracking Aid) developed by RCS (Radar & Communication Systems) for improved ships navigation and safety. INDRA-MX has been tried in Cilegon, Banten on 24 October 2008.
