Rada's Tactical Radars To Be Integrated With US Artis 'Iron Curtain' Protection System
CHR-based RPS-10 radar system

Israel's Rada will provide its CHR-based RPS-10 radar system to integrate and test with  the US' Artis "Iron Curtain" close-in Active Protection System (APS).

The Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR) platform is an S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar.

The radar system introduces sophisticated beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing and can provide various missions on each radar platform, the company announced in a statement Monday.

The system is compact and mobile, delivering ideal solutions for the protection of combat vehicles by providing hostile fire detection capabilities and providing critical targeting information for APS.

The RPS-10 mission is optimized to detect direct fire threats such as RPGs and Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM), and deliver the data in real time to the APS for neutralization of threats.

Artis Iron Curtain is a close-in APS that defeats rocket propelled grenades and other shoulder-launched threats. It intercepts and destroys a multitude of threats inches from their targets, affording high level of protection with minimal collateral damage.

The integration and testing is planned for the first quarter of 2017.
