RADA's CHR plays Iron Fist role
Rada Electronic Industries’ Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR) will be part of the IMI Systems’ Iron Fist Active Protection System (APS) being installed on the Dutch army’s CV90 infantry fighting vehicles for testing and verification, the company announced on 9 January.
The CHR platform is an S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar that uses sophisticated beam forming and advanced signal processing to support various missions on any radar platform.
According to RADA, the CHR was developed to address the needs of the APS market. As part of Iron Fist, the CHR provides hostile fire detection capabilities and provides critical targeting information.
APS provide armored vehicles protection against rocket-propelled grenades, anti-tank guided missiles and tank shells.
