US military has purchased a Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) from RADA Electronic Industries in Israel for testing and evaluation of its capabilities.
The MHR will be delivered before the end of 2015, the company announced Tuesday.
This purchase is the first by this branch of the US military and follows previous purchases of MHRs by US integrators and end users for similar purposes.
The MHR, an S-Band, software-defined, Pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar, has sophisticated beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing, provides multiple missions on each radar platform, and offers unprecedented performance-to-price ratio.
It is compact and mobile, delivering ideal organic, tactical surveillance solutions for force and border protection applications such as counter rockets and mortars, counter unmanned aerial systems, ground moving target indicator and air surveillance.
RADA Electronic Industries is an Israel-based defense electronics contractor. The Company specializes in the development, production, and sale of tactical land radars for force and border protection, inertial navigation systems for air and land applications, and avionics systems and upgrades.
