Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has recently completed the installation of the advanced ALPHA radar system on the Sa’ar-4.5 missile ship and is proceeding to operational sea trials.

The Israeli Navy is expected to receive two more ALPHA radars by the end of 2017, reaching a total of 11 systems, to be installed on the Navy's missile ships, the company announced in a press release Monday.

The light weight innovative radar system which is an integral part of the combat systems installed on the missile ships, will be displayed at the IMDEX ASIA 2017 exhibition in Singapore this week.

The ALPHA is rotating AESA radar, capable of producing a large number of simultaneous beams for maritime and aerial targets, and to provide a high quality situation picture in the most extreme marine environment. The radar can perform several tasks at the same time, such as: detection and classification of naval targets, tracking of a large number of targets, and integration into guided missile systems for defense and attack. Thanks to its size, it can be installed on small and medium-sized vessels such as corvettes, missile ships and medium-sized patrol ships. In addition, the radar provides a solution for upgrading existing navy vessels or installation on new platforms.
