Indra to supply deployable radar to RAF
Indra has received a contract to supply the UK Royal Air Force with an advanced long-range air defence deployable radar, the company announced on 13 May.
The Indra LTR-25 L-band radar offers high long-range detection capabilities, comparable to those of larger fixed radars, but with the added advantage of being able to operate very quickly and be transported in aircraft such as the C-130.
The radar is designed to reinforce the surveillance of a specific area on a one-off basis or to be available as backup in the event that a fixed radar is attacked or damaged.
The company will deliver the system later in 2019.
