Israel’s Defense Ministry’s Directorate of Research and Development (MAFAT – DDR&D) has tasked BIRD Aerosystems to demonstrate a prototype of an active defense system that will protect ground troops and high-value assets against airborne threats (including anti-tank guided missiles – ATGM). The system called ‘HybridEye’ was unveiled at the Eurosatory 2022 exhibition. The system provides hemispheric detection of threats and provides target data for passive or active countermeasures on board.
RADA unveils at DSEI 2019 two new radars addressing the acute threats that land forces are facing in the modern battlefield. Both radars - the aCHR and xMHR, provide the central sensor element in mobile active protection capabilities - both APS and mobile SHORAD, are based on the company’s modular software-defined radar platform.
Israel's ELTA Systems, a division, and a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) have been awarded a $55-million contract for the delivery of an undisclosed number of ELM-2032 Multimode Airborne Fire Control Radars to be installed in a new combat aircraft of an Asian origin.
Israel's tactical radar pioneer RADA Electronic Industries reported new orders worth US$5 million for two variants of its mobile radars, the Multirole Hemispheric Radar, employed in Counter Rocket Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM), Counter UAV (C-UAV) and Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) applications.
The Polish military is planning to modernize the country’s radar surveillance by replacing aging systems with new, more capable sensors featuring improved electronic countermeasures, resistance to jamming and seamless data connectivity to national and NATO systems.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has added a foliage penetrating (FOPEN) radar to its ELM-2112 family of persistent ground surveillance radars. Unlike other sensors in the ELM-2112 family, the ELM-2112FP operates in the L-band, to enable better penetration of dense foliage. With this capability the new radar can penetrate 'few tens of meters' into dense vegetation, to detect moving targets hidden in dense shrubs, forests, and jungles, from a distance of several kilometers away.
China continues its force buildup across islands throughout the South China Sea. A study compiled by Asia maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) of the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) unveiled new installations and preparations on a number of islands.
Researchers at a Raytheon-sponsored lab at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, have developed a new "ink" that "print" tunable microwave components on plastic surfaces, forming key elements of radar systems, including phase shifters and screening filters
An Israeli company is developing a new 3D-imaging sensor that can see through objects and monitor the location, function and composition of multiple objects in a monitored space. The company announced yesterday the completion of a US$22 million funding round, in time for the planned introduction of its new sensor.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) unveiled today the ELM-2090S Spectra 'mega radar', an 'S band' companion to the Ultra UHF radar system introduced few months ago.
Israel's defense electronics company RADA Electronic Industries announced it has recently received an order to supply an RPS-42 tactical air surveillance radar to a leading European defense contractor. The new radar, a member of RADA's S-band multi-mission hemispheric radar (MHR) family of systems, will be delivered later this year. According to company sources, several customers have selected the RPS-42 for aerial surveillance missions.
The Scorpion reconnaissance and attack aircraft displayed at the Paris Air Show this week is currently on its second European tour, visiting mainland Europe and the UK. Seeking international customers Textron offers the Scorpion at a cost of business aircraft - 'below $20 million per aircraft', and at a flight-hour cost of $3,000 – about 10 – 20 percent of the acquisition and operating costs of modern combat aircraft or advanced trainers.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is unveiling an advanced, UHF, Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar at the Paris Air Show. It is designed to search, detect and track ‘air breathing targets,’ including low-observable (stealth) aircraft, missiles, UAVs and ballistic missile targets at very long range, providing operating early warning. The new radar, which has already become operational with an unspecified customer, is part of the new ULTRA family of UHF radars developed by IAI's ELTA Systems Group and subsidiary.
Northrop grumman has developed a modern AESA radar for the B-1B Lancer bomber. Based on the company's SABR design, the new radar uses an antenna array three times as large as the F-16s' APG-83, providing large synthetic aperture radar maps, and sensor integration that supports situational awareness for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting.
