The Government-to-Government (GTG) contract was signed in Prague by Israel's Ministry of Defense International Defense Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT) and the Czech Ministry of Defense under its Mobile Air Defense Radar (MADR) program, Globes reported Friday.
The contract includes delivery of eight ELTA ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radars (MMR) with air surveillance, air defense, and artillery capabilities between 2021 and 2023. ELTA says it will be the prime contractor in the project.
