Netanya, Israel, November 30, 2016- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: RADA) today announced that it has received initial purchase orders to provide its advanced Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR) to a highly strategic Asian customer.
The value of these orders are over $1.1 million, and deliveries are expected to be completed within the first half of 2017.
The customer has placed initial orders with RADA for operational evaluation of the radars and immediate gap filling. The market potential for such tactical radars to this customer is expected to be very significant.
The orders are for various operational applications, which demonstrate the range of missions and flexibility of RADA’s radar technology: detection of fires, drones, surface targets, and combinations of these missions. RADA’s MHR radar platform is technologically advanced using an S-band, software-defined, Pulse-Doppler radar with active electronically scanned array (AESA) antenna and the most advanced GaN amplifiers. These compact, multi-mission radars offer an unprecedented performance-to-price ratio and are ideal solutions for force and border protection needs.
Dov Sella, RADA’s CEO, commented: “We have invested years of focused marketing activity and demonstrations to this highly valued customer. We are very pleased that our efforts have come to fruition with the receipt of these initial orders. We anticipate that the ongoing near-term usage of our radars will more than prove their viability to the customer, and will pave the way for significant future orders”.
