Rada, an Israeli company, is gearing up for production of its new tactical radar that the U.S. Army and the IDF may use to pinpoint the source of mortar fire and rocket fire.
Rada has successfully tested its Multi-mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR), the independent Israel Defense website reported.
The U.S. Army asked Rada to carry out the test in the Negev last November, and the radar identified a mortar and a rocket, allowing rapid identification of the source, which then could be fired on immediately.
The radar tracks the trajectory of the fire and can locate the source of enemy fire and ground incursions.
