Not exactly sure, as it appears to have several different potential configurations.
There does appear to be a mobile military system which consists of four separate transceivers and two aerials. This S600 system appears able to provide 3D data, and operates in the 3 GHz/C-band at 1 MW.
I will see what more I can dig up. So far though, is does not appear that the primary usage would be for ATC apart from perhaps on a battlefield.
