RADA’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar was Selected by an Asian Military Force
RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. has announced its selection by an Asian military force of its Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) based RPS-42 aerial surveillance radar systems. RADA’s systems will provide highly advanced aerial surveillance capabilities, enabling the detection of Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAV) or Drones for air defense.
The customer has selected RADA’s RPS-42 radar systems after a very thorough and competitive evaluation process in comparison to various other competing radar systems. Deliveries are to be completed by mid-2017.
The MHR radar platform, which is the heart of the system, is an S-Band, Software-Defined, Pulse-Doppler, Active Electronically Scanned Array radar. It introduces sophisticated beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing. It can provide multiple missions on each radar platform, and offers an unprecedented performance-to-price ratio. It is a compact and mobile system, delivering ideal organic, tactical surveillance solutions for force and border protection applications such as counter rockets and mortars, counter unmanned aerial systems, ground moving target indicator, air surveillance, and more.
Commented Zvi Alon, RADA’s CEO, “This selection by a primary customer, is a major milestone achievement for RADA. In today’s world drones are becoming more and more prevalent. This order proves that our radar performance in aerial surveillance applications is superior to the competition, providing a market-leading performance-to-price ratio. We are proud to have been selected by this customer for such a significant and important program, and we can expect it to lead to further opportunities for RADA, both with the same customer and in other countries”.
