NETANYA, Israel, June 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries (Nasdaq:RADA) of Netanya, Israel announced today that it received an order to produce and supply a tactical air surveillance radar to a leading European defense contractor. The radar will be delivered later this year.
The multi-mission hemispheric radar (MHR) is an S-band, software-defined, Pulse-Doppler, active, electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. It has sophisticated beam-forming capabilities and advanced signal processing, provides multiple missions on each radar platform and offers a unique price point.
The MHR, operating in its RPS-42 aerial surveillance mission, detects and tracks multiple aerial targets, ranging from transport aircraft – through high performing fighter aircraft – down to the smallest multi-copter nano UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). As a result, several customers have selected the RPS-42 for aerial surveillance missions.
"We are very pleased with this order. While the order is not large, it comes from a new customer and we believe it confirms our global presence in this growing market. The European market is demonstrating increased interest in our radars and inertial navigation systems and is gradually becoming one of our major markets," said Zvi Alon, RADA's CEO.
RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. is an Israel-based defense electronics contractor. The Company specializes in the development, production, and sale of tactical land radar systems for force and border protection, inertial navigation systems for air and land applications, and avionics systems and upgrades.
