US forces select RADA's MHR
RADA Electronic Industries has received an order worth more than $8 million to supply Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR) to the US armed forces, the company announced on 17 August.
The radars will be deployed for air surveillance and counter-UAS operations.
The MHR is an S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar. The compact and mobile radars enable multiple missions on each radar and work while on-the-move.
Dov Sella, CEO at RADA, said: ‘We are proud to be awarded with this order by the US military, following long, demanding and detailed trials, in which our systems had proven superior in the increasingly important fields of air surveillance and counter-UAS warfare.
‘While this initial win has potential for additional orders with this particular force, we also see further potential with other US military forces and world leading defence forces, which are in need of tactical, on-the-move surveillance and protection solutions for the manoeuvre forces.’
The radar systems will be delivered in 2017.
