RADA receives order for MHR radar system

RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. has received an order for its Multi-mission Hemispheric Radar-based (MHR) RPS-42 radar system, to be used by a Far-East-based customer for the development and testing of its High Energy Laser (HEL) ground-based tactical weapon system, the company said.

This current order is the fourth order of MHR for HEL weapon systems, re-emphasizing the suitability and potential of the MHR to HEL systems. The MHR is currently integrated into the US Navy/Marine Corps GBAD HEL program, the Lockheed Martin Athena HEL program, and Boeing´s HEL-MD and Silent Strike programs.

RADA´s MHR 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, which can provide various missions on each radar platform and offers excellent performance-to-price ratio. It is compact and mobile, operates on-the-move and enables tactical threats´ detection capabilities which make it an ideal choice for the surveillance radar as part of emerging HEL systems.

RADA Electronic Industries is an Israel-based defense electronics contractor. The company specializes in the development, production, and sales of tactical land radars for force and border protection, inertial navigation systems and avionics systems for fighter aircraft and UAVs.
