Abstract. This article provides an overview of the key elements of radars built on the basis on microwave photonics (MPh). The technical solutions currently available on the market for all key nodes of the MPh radar are investigated. The possibility of switching from traditional radars to MPh radars ones is investigated and the advantages of such a transition are substantiated. A study of the appearance of an ultra-wide-band dual-band radar for navigation of ships in the Arctic zone based on elements of MPh has been carried out. The potential tactical and technical characteristics on systems are evaluated, taking into account the work in difficult climatic conditions, a comparative analysis with existing radars is carried out. Modeling has shown that it is possible to increase the detection range and a significant increase in the range resolution, as well as increase noise immunity, which will improve the quality of navigation support.

Key words: microwave photonics radars, photonic analog-to-digital converter, ultra-broadband signal, navigation, arctic zone.
