Last month, Rada announced the successful completion of a major milestone, significantly advancing the operability of its tactical radars for the maneuver force, providing the ‘On-the-Move’ (OTM) operation. The OTM capability of aerial surveillance, while the radar-carrying vehicle is performing its operational missions on-the-move is a highly desirable and very important operational requirement by tactical maneuver forces, especially when encountering low, slow and small-sized threats such as armed drones and tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Dov Sella, RADA’s CEO, commented, “Since inception of our radars, we have considered the OTM technical and operational capabilities in their design, and we have now matured these products to address the urgent OTM needs of our customer base. We are very happy with the performance of our radars under these very demanding conditions. We are confident that the availability of this advanced capability will broaden and expand our customer base through increased demand, and will ultimately grow sales of our tactical radars in the near future.”

The capability was recently demonstrated to a strategic customer under a field test which was highly successful. The radars demonstrated early detection, continuous and accurate tracking of a wide variety of small-sized, low and slow aerial targets from a continuously moving vehicle on varied terrain. RADA’s upgraded RPS-42 MHR-based counter-drone radar systems with OTM capability will be delivered to this particular customer, as well as others, in July 2017.
