Slovak radar deal nears finalisation
A government-to-government contract for Israel to provide Slovakia with 17 short-, medium- and long-range mobile 3D air defence radars is 99% finalised, according to the Slovak MoD.
The Slovak MoD in January chose the ELM-2084 MMR system from Israel Aerospace Industries subsidiary Elta Systems, ahead of competing offers from other governments.
Slovakia is spending €148.2 million on the radar procurement.
On 11 March, during a visit to Israel (pictured) and following talks with his counterpart Benny Gantz, Slovak Minister of Defence Jaroslav Naď said ‘we expect that the treaty will be signed in Slovakia as soon as this month. For now, the expected date is March 26, 2021’.
He added that Slovak industry will achieve 30% participation in the contract.
