ELTA Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), has developed the next generation of its ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radar (MMR).
According to ELTA the operational and combat proven MMR provides air defense capabilities to customers around the world as well as being the radar of “Iron Dome”, “David’s Sling” and IAI’s land-based “Barak” weapon systems.
The new version, named MS-MMR (Multi-Sensor MMR), fuses additional ELTA sensors to the main MMR system thereby providing an active, passive, and combined Air Situational Picture (ASP).
According to Ran Turgeman, senior air defence system at ELTA, the new version has additional passive sensors that increase the capability of the radar to detect many types of targets including rockets and drones.
