100th IAI-Elta Multi-Mis­sion Radar Sys­tem ac­qui­si­tion

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - World Aviation & Defence News -

IAI-ELTA marked the 100th ELM-2084 Multi-Mis­sion Radar (MMR) fam­ily ac­qui­si­tion at an event and ex­hi­bi­tion held in ELTA fa­cil­i­ties in Ash­dod, Is­rael, with par­tic­i­pa­tion of se­nior MOD and mil­i­tary of­fi­cials, mil­i­tary at­taches, and cur­rent users world­wide. Ini­tially devel­oped for the Is­raeli De­fence Forces and im­proved for the ‘Iron Dome’ in­ter­cep­tion sys­tem a decade ago, the MMR

fam­ily has evolved through­out the years to of­fer ca­pa­bil­i­ties for air sur­veil­lance, air de­fence, C-RAM and Ar­tillery Hos­tile Weapon Lo­ca­tion and Friendly Fire Rang­ing. MMR is a main sen­sor of ‘Iron Dome’, ‘David’s Sling, and IAI’s land-based ‘Barak’ weapon sys­tems “that have changed the mod­ern bat­tle­fild.” The Barak is a land and naval short to long range point and area de­fence mis­sile sys­tem and has been proven through more than 1500 op­er­a­tional in­ter­cepts in bat­tle since 2011. This con­tin­ues to be im­proved through les­sons learned dur­ing past con­flicts and up­dated tech­nolo­gies.
