The growing demand for systems that can protect from UAV and drones is increasing the demand for the radar incorporated in the systems for the detection of the threat.
Israeli company Rada Electronics has recently won contracts that include mainly the company’s tactical radar.
The over US$6 million contract is mainly for the supply the company’s software-defined AESA radars for international counter UAV solutions.
The majority of these were initial orders from new defense customers, which possess significant future potential for repeated follow-on orders. There were also repeated orders from existing defense customers, which are expanding their deployments of their systems that incorporate our radars.
RADA offers advanced pulse-Doppler, multi-mission, AESA radars for land-based tactical applications such as Active Protection Systems (APS) for combat vehicles, Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) solutions for the maneuver force (including Counter-UAV), Counter Rockets/Artillery/Mortars (C-RAM) systems, and more. These software-defined radars introduce hemispheric spatial coverage with an excellent performance-to-price ratio.
