I will say this again.. Rolling past the 'roll gimbal' should NOT stop the radar from working. The radar antenna only rolls to keep the guard antenna pointed toward the earth for sidelobe suppression.

The radar antenna doesnt roll at all in ACM modes and works just fine (as it should). Rolling a flash light doesnt stop it from illuminating an object, nor does it prevent your eyes from seeing the reflection.

You should be able to fully roll 100 times over without losing track. Only letting the target exceed the azimuth and elevation limits would allow for a break lock (because the antenna can nor longer point in the targets direction).
