The South Korean Army has awarded a $280m contract to Israeli defence products provider Elta Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, to supply radar systems.

Under the contract, the company will supply its EL/M2032 fire control radar systems for South Korea’s indigenous TA/FA 50 Golden Eagle jet.

The EL/M-2032 is an advanced multimode airborne fire control radar designed for multi-role fighter aircraft, oriented for air-to-air and strike missions. The radar can identify and classify a range of targets at long ranges and will provide high-resolution combat arena maps.

The system features a modular hardware design, software control and flexible avionic interfaces, which greatly enhance the air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea capabilities of the aircraft.

The radars will be jointly manufactured with South Korean sensors and communications equipment maker LIG Nex1 and are expected to be operational in 2012.
