Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)’sELTA Systems will provide fire control radars for installation on an unspecified fighter aircraft, as part of a major upgrade of one of the Asian air forces. ELTA Systems Ltd., IAI’s group and subsidiary, will deliver the ELM-2032 under a recently signed $150 Million contract, spanning over five years.
The modern ELM-2032 fire control radar implements advanced technologies that greatly enhance surveillance and fire control capabilities in air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea operation modes. Its compact, lightweight design offers high performance standards with a competitive attractive price. The EL/M-2032 implements modular hardware design, software control and flexible avionic interface ensuring flexible integration in different aircraft and limited nose space. Unlike the latest generation fighter radars based on electronic scanning antennae, the EL/M-2032 radar operates a mechanical scanning, yet is compact enough to be installed in different fighter aircraft including MiG-21, Sea Harrier, F-5, Mirage, Kfir C-10 and F-4.In addition to upgrade programs, the EL/M-2032 has already been selected for the South Korean F/A-50 (strike version of the T-50 trainer) and Indian Tejas Light Combat Aircraft.
