RADA Electronic Industries Ltd has received a strategic first order for dozens of Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR) from the US Department of Defense in a deal worth over USD8 million. The radars will be used by a key US military force, providing it with air surveillance with emphasis on counter-UAV with on-the-move capabilities. The radars are expected to be fielded for operational use soon after delivery.
According to Dov Sella, RADA’s CEO: “This is a true breakthrough and highly significant order for RADA. Furthermore, strategically, it is our first delivery to a key US military customer, with potential for further orders down the road. We have been awarded this order following long, demanding and detailed trials, as would be expected for a key defence application, proving the superiority of our radars in the increasingly important field of counter-UAV warfare.”
RADA’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR) are S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars. The radars introduce beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing, which can provide for various missions on each radar platform. The radars are compact and mobile, enabling multiple-missions on each radar, and work while on-the-move. RADA has sold over 300 radar systems to-date, to various global defence customers.
