Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) subsidiary ELTA has completed the sale of the 100th ELM-2084 multi-mission radar (MMR) system.

The ELM-2084 MMR radar family has been acquired by several nations across the globe and is used for air surveillance and defence.

IAI-ELTA’s 100 radar systems and related projects have recently exceeded $1.9bn in sales.

Initially built for the requirements of the Israeli Defense Forces, the MMR family has been upgraded to offer capabilities for air surveillance and defence, counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM), artillery hostile weapon location, and friendly fire ranging.

“Featuring high redundancy, degradation, reliability and availability, the radar family supports artillery weapon location and air defence operational missions.”

MMR is the primary sensor of the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and IAI’s land-based Barak weapon systems.

Israeli Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) director retired colonel Moshe Patal said: “The Israeli active interceptor sensor network includes multiple MMR radars, which serve for air situational surveillance and air defence systems.

“These systems are connected and fully interoperable with US systems for regional Air Situation Picture and engagement coordination. This interoperability has been evaluated and proven during numerous joint US-Israeli exercises such as Juniper-Cobra.”

Since 2011, the ELM-2084 radar has carried out more than 1,500 operational intercepts in battlefields.

The ELM-2084 MMR family implements an advanced 3D active electronically steered array (AESA) supporting modular and scalable architecture.

Featuring high redundancy, degradation, reliability and availability, the radar family supports artillery weapon location and air defence operational missions.

In addition, the ELM-2084 radar provides optimal solutions for short, medium and long-range missions.
