The US Military awarded RADA Electronic Industries Ltd an $8million contract for a strategic first order for dozens of Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR). RADA Electronics Industries is a leader in the development, production and sale of tactical land radars for force and border protection.
Dov Stella, RADA’s CEO, commented: “We are proud to be awarded this order by the US Military, following long, demanding and detailed trials, in which our systems had proven superior in the increasingly important fields of air surveillance and counter-UAS warfare.”
The radars will provide a key US Military force with air surveillance with an emphasis on counter-unmanned aerial systems thanks to the most advanced on-the-move capabilities. The radars, which will be delivered during 2017, are scheduled to be fielded for operational use soon after delivery.
“While this initial win has potential for additional orders with this particular force, we also see further potential with other US military forces and world leading defence forces, which are in need of tactical, on-the-move surveillance and protection solutions for the manoeuvre forces,” concluded Mr Stella.
