IAI to supply air defence radar to an undisclosed European country

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has been awarded a contract to supply a Multi-Sensor Multi-Mission Radar (MS-MMR) system to an undisclosed European country for its integrated air defence system.

MS-MMR is a system that combines two technologies: Electronic Support Measures (ESM) and the Multi-Mode Radar (MMR). The ESM sensor is a passive device that helps the radar to detect and identify airborne threats. It does this by analyzing the electromagnetic signals emitted by these threats.

By doing so, it helps the radar to identify and classify targets more accurately, even when they are close together or have a low radar cross section (RCS). The MS-MMR system provides a more detailed and accurate Air-Situational Picture (ASP) to the air defence system.

This helps operators to respond more quickly and effectively to unidentified targets and reduces the risk of errors caused by misidentifying neutral parties. By combining radar and ESM data, the tracking accuracy is improved, and the system’s range and detection performance are enhanced.

“The combination of passive ESM and active radar is the optimal combined sensor for air defense, 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.

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