Tactical radars for force protection

RADA Electronic Industries : 02 September, 2016  (Application Story)
A radar system from RADA will be used as part of a close-in active protection system against fire threats
Tactical radars for force protection

RADA Electronic Industries will provide its CHR-based RPS-10 radar system to Artis of Herndon, VA for integration and testing with its "Iron Curtain" close-in Active Protection System (APS).

The Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR) platform is an S-band, software-defined, pulse-Doppler, active electronically scanned array radar. The radar system introduces sophisticated beam forming capabilities and advanced signal processing, can provide various missions on each radar platform and offers unprecedented performance-to-price ratio. It is compact and mobile, delivering ideal methods for the protection of combat vehicles by providing hostile fire detection capabilities and providing critical targeting information for APS. The RPS-10 mission is optimised to detect direct fire threats such as RPGs and Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM), and deliver the data in real time to the APS for neutralisation of threats.

Artis Iron Curtain is a close-in APS that defeats rocket propelled grenades and other shoulder-launched threats. It intercepts and destroys a multitude of threats inches from their targets, affording high levels of protection with minimal collateral damage.

According to Zvi Alon, RADA's CEO, "The global APS market is emerging, as can be seen by the increasing number of customers who recognise the need for such systems. RADA's CHR and the RPS-10 mission fit any potential active protection system. After successful integration and testing of the RPS-10 with an Israeli APS, we are very happy with the opportunity to prove its operability as part of the Iron Curtain and actively look forward to more global APS opportunities."
