100th IAI-Elta Multi-Mission Radar System acquisition
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.
