Lockheed Martin’s space systems company will use a multi-mission hemispheric radar from RADA Electronic Industries to test a high energy laser weapon system prototype.
The radar system contains signal processing technologies and provides multiple missions on each radar platform, RADA said Monday.
Zvi Alon, RADA’s CEO, said the MHR is designed “for use with systems that counter rockets and mortars.”
Lockheed will combine the radar with other sensors for the tests.
The MHR applies to operations such as counter rockets and mortars, counter unmanned aerial systems, ground moving target indicator and air surveillance.
