31st July 2015 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US military has acquired a Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) system from RADA Electronic Industries for testing and evaluation, the company announced on 28 July.

The MHR system will be delivered before the end of 2015. This marks the first purchase of the system by this (unspecified) branch of the US military. 

The MHR is an S-Band, software-defined, Pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar with sophisticated beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing. Compact and mobile, it is designed to deliver organic, tactical surveillance capabilities for force and border protection, including counter rockets and mortars, counter unmanned aerial systems, ground moving target indicator and air surveillance.

Zvi Alon, CEO, RADA Electronic Industries, said: 'We are very pleased with the growing interest in our radars by the US market, which we believe will be one of the most important markets for our radar technology.'
