Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company has selected Rada Electronic Industries' Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) to support its laser weapon system prototype testing. Rada announced the selection on 23 March.

Lockheed Martin will use the MHR along with other sensors for its internally funded high energy laser weapon system prototype testing. MHR is an S-Band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar. It has beam forming and signal processing capabilities and provides multiple missions on each radar platform.

MHR is a compact and mobile system suitable for tactical surveillance solutions for border protection and force applications such as mortars and counter rockets, counter UAS, ground moving target indicator and air surveillance.

Zvi Alon, CEO, Rada Electronic Industries, said: 'We are very happy with Lockheed Martin's selection of our unique MHR, which is particularly suited for use with systems that counter rockets and mortars.'
