NETANYA, Israel, July 1 By Richard Tomkins (UPI)
Israel's RADA Electronic Industries has announced it is to produce a tactical air surveillance radar system for an unidentified European defense contractor.
The value of the contract and the number of Multi-mission Hemispheric Radars to be supplied were not disclosed but RADA said the order would be fulfilled by the end of this year.
RADA's Multi-mission Hemispheric Radar, or MHR, is an S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar with advanced signal processing. It detects and tracks multiple aerial targets -- fighters and transports to small unmanned aerial vehicles.
"We are very pleased with this order. While the order is not large, it comes from a new customer and we believe it confirms our global presence in this growing market," sais RADA Chief Executive Officer Zvi Alon. "The European market is demonstrating increased interest in our radars and inertial navigation systems and is gradually becoming one of our major markets."
