IAI’s MS-MMR Radar Boosts European Air Defence

Our Bureau - : Apr 17, 2024 - : 12:48 am

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has secured a contract to supply a Multi-Sensor Multi-Mission Radar (MS-MMR) system for the air defence apparatus of a European nation. The MS-MMR, developed and manufactured by IAI’s ELTA Systems, incorporates an Electronic Support Measures (ESM) system (ELL-8385) integrated into the MMR (ELM-2084).

“The combination of passive ESM and active radar is the optimal combined sensor for air defence, boosting the ability to detect and identify airborne threats throughout the arena,” said Adi Dulberg, VP and GM of IAI ELTA’s Intelligence, Communications, and Electronic Warfare Division on the company press release (Apr. 16).

“The combined active-passive Air Situational Picture will enhance our customer’s security by providing their air defence system with the best possible threat intelligence,” he added.

The passive ESM sensor significantly boosts the radar’s ability to detect and identify airborne threats by capturing their electromagnetic signatures. ESM assists in classifying and identifying targets detected by the radar, even amidst closely positioned multiple targets or those with low radar cross sections (RCS). This enhancement extends the radar’s detection range and performance, thereby improving tracking accuracy through the integration of radar and ESM data.

According to the company, the MS-MMR provides the air defence system with a more comprehensive and effective Air-Situational Picture (ASP), enabling quicker responses to unidentified targets and reducing errors arising from misidentifying neutral entities.
