IAI, Hyundai supplies the Philippines with Navy radar systems

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries have signed an agreement to supply the Philippine fleet with IAI’s ALPHA 3D radar systems. The systems will be integrated on the new Corvette ships of the Philippine Navy.

IAI ELTA Division’s ALPHA 3D Radar System is a lightweight, multifunctional 3D AESA radar that shares technology with its larger system, the MF-STAR radar. With its modular design and fully digital software-driven architecture, ALPHA delivers low LCC along with the cost-effective ability to implement future upgrades, primarily through software updates, ensuring the ability to handle new threats over the extended life of the system. IAI’s family of fleet radar technology is operational and combat tested in fleets worldwide.

The ALPHA 3D Radar System will be fully integrated with the Combat Management System (CMS) provided by Hanwha Systems, and will provide a range of advanced multi-mission capabilities to the Philippine Navy.

IAI VP and ELTA CEO Yoav Tourgeman said: “This agreement is a testament to IAI’s close partnership and collaboration with Hyundai and the defense ecosystem in Asia. Hyundai has. Heavy Industries has positioned itself in IAI. We are honored to be an integral part of this important program and deliver our operational, combat-proof systems to our friends in Asia. “

IAI develops advanced fleet technologies. IAI’s radar technology and air and missile defense systems are operational in fleets worldwide, including the Israeli Navy, which integrated the MF-STAR radar and Barak MX Air and Missile Defense System on its new Sa’ar Corvettes in 2021. IAI’s tailor-made fleet solutions are based on decades of technological, combat-proven expertise.
