ELTA Systems has introduced the next generation of ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radar (MMR) and has offered the system to all current operators of the previous generation system operators. MS-MMR fuses additional ELTA sensors to the main MMR system thereby providing an active, passive, and combined Air Situational Picture (ASP) and will be revealed at upcoming Paris Air Show.
MS-MMR has been fined tuned and now comes with additional sensors with higher accuracy, faster update rates and upgraded identification of aerial threats including that of platforms such as drones and UAVs, tactical aerial weapons, cruise missiles, and ballistic rockets.MS-MMR is also capable of detecting platforms with low RCS (Radar Cross Section) incorporating a certain level of stealth technology.
India has developed a local variant of the Radar system called ” Arudhra ” which is a 4D medium-power radar (MPR) based on the Israeli previous generation ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radar (MMR) system with the help of DRDO. Arudhra is deployed at the air bases in Rajasthan and Gujarat near the Pakistan border. Arudhra is capable of detecting targets at ranges greater than 300 km and it is an important component in IAF plans to achieve net-centric operations.
