Czech Republic has signed an agreement to buy eight multi-mission radars from Israel in a deal valued $125 million.

 

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.

 

The MADR systems will operate in accordance with Czech and NATO command and control systems.

 

As part of the deal, Israel will transfer state-of-the-art technology and know-how. The program also includes a substantial contribution from Czech industries, amounting to 30% of the contract value. The cooperation with local companies will apply to all parts of the program including design, manufacturing, assembly, integration, testing and life-time maintenance of the systems. Certain security components will be manufactured locally, including advanced Gallium Nitride (GaN) radar modules, as well as auxiliary sub-systems such as trucks and camouflage nets
