24th January 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


IAI's Elta Systems has received a contract to supply its ELM-2311 compact multi-mission radar (C-MMR) to the Finnish Defence Forces.

The ELM-2311 C-MMR is a C-band radar system that implements advanced 3D AESA antenna technology and is transportable on a single vehicle for manoeuvring forces. It is capable of locating and tracking incoming rockets, artillery shells and mortars, and calculating point of impact and point of origin in real time while simultaneously providing friendly-fire ranging.

Yoav Tourgeman, IAI VP and CEO of Elta Systems, said: ‘The MMR family responds to a broad range of needs, by locating and tracking incoming rockets and artillery shells and by creating a comprehensive situational air picture. The demand for mobile MMR systems is on the rise with Elta’s operationally proven radars well known and active across the globe.’

The radar was tested in Finland in spring 2018. The system is scheduled to be delivered in 2021.
