Israel’s defense electronics company RADA reported yesterday on the successful testing campaign of its new family of radars. Among the systems being tested are the company’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) and the Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR), both systems are undergoing field trials and demonstrations in Israel and abroad, with production-standard demonstrations in Israel and abroad. According to company officials the demonstrations have started in May 2012 and are expected to continue till the end of the year.

RADA has developed two radar hardware platforms: the Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR), which is tailored to combat vehicles and short-range protection applications; and the Multi-mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR), which is tailored to force and border protection applications. Both are configured as tactical, compact and mobile systems operating in the S Band frequency range and employ active electronically scanned array (AESA) plannar antennae technology employing agile scanning modes, with track while scan functionality, supporting the war-fighters and provide them with real-time threat alerts.
