IAI Delivers First MMR to Czech Republic

Part of $125 Million 2019 Deal

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has supplied the Czech Republic, via its Czech partners RETIA and VTU, with the first air defence Multi-Mission Radar (MMR), as part of a deal signed in December 2019 by the two MoDs, the company announced on 5 April.

The operational, combat-proven radar provides both surveillance and defence capabilities, and is compatible with NATO systems. It detects and classifies threats, and supplies weapon systems with the data necessary to neutralise a number of those threats simultaneously. Through its advanced tracking capabilities, it provides precise, reliable situational awareness and includes the detection and identification of low-signature targets.

The MMR can deal simultaneously with multiple missions – including countering aircraft, UAVs and artillery, as well as identifying and locating launch and anticipated target positions for rockets, artillery and mortars and controlling intercepting missiles launched against these threats. The MMR is the ‘brain’ of Israel’s Barak MX Air and Missile Defense System, Iron Dome, and David’s Sling: to, date over 150 such systems have been sold to customers around the world.

Yoav Tourgeman, IAI VP and ELTA CEO, said: “Working together with our local Czech partners, IAI is proud to supply the Czech Ministry of Defense with these advanced radar systems, on time and according to the project schedule. Despite the challenges of the last two years during the COVID-19 pandemic, the project teams, in both Israel and the Czech Republic, were able to cooperate successfully while remaining committed to the aim of joint production. The advanced radar that has now been supplied to the Czech Republic is able to simultaneously identify and classify hundreds of targets, perform identification of unmanned platforms, missiles, rockets and other new threats in the operational area. We believe that the system’s ability to integrate with NATO systems will bring about a new era of operations for the Czech Ministry of Defense.”
