The Type 7 PRS is built into the nose of the vessel and thus has a 40 degree blindspot toward the back of the ship. Due to it's construction and the nature of how it functions, it is not susceptible to most types of interference, making it good against countermeasures and in nebulae. It's low-power and passively scans at all times. The Type 7C variant has an active radar addon, allowing the crew to focus in on a single 6 deg cone to keep track of specific objects.
