Israeli manufacturer RADA Electronic Industries has been awarded an $8 million U.S. military order for air defense radars.
A RADA news release would only describe the order as “dozens” of Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars, from a customer identified only as “a key US military force.”
The radars will provide “air surveillance with emphasis on counter-UAV with the most advanced on-the-move capabilities,” according to RADA. “The radars are expected to be fielded for operational use soon after delivery.”
“It is our first delivery to a key US military customer, with potential for further orders down the road,” RADA CEO Dov Sella said. “We have been awarded this order following long, demanding and detailed trials, as would be expected for a key defense application, proving the superiority of our radars in the increasingly important field of counter-UAV warfare.”
