Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries have signed an agreement to supply the Philippine Navy with IAI’s ALPHA 3D Radar Systems for integration on the Navy’s new Corvette ships.
Developed by IAI’s ELTA Division, the ALPHA 3D Radar System is a lightweight, multi-function 3D AESA radar, which shares technology with its the larger the MF-STAR radar from IAI.
With its modular construction and fully digital software-driven architecture, the ALPHA delivers low LCC together with the cost-effective ability to implement future upgrades, mainly through software updates, ensuring the ability to cope with new threats over the system’s extended service life.
The ALPHA 3D Radar System will be fully integrated with the Combat Management System (CMS) supplied by Hanwha Systems, and will provide an array of advanced multi-mission capabilities for the Philippine Navy.
“This agreement is a testament to IAI’s close partnership and cooperation with Hyundai and the defense ecosystem in Asia,” said Yoav Tourgeman, IAI VP and CEO of ELTA. “Incorporating IAI’s pioneering AESA technology on the Philippine Navy’s new ships highlights the trust that the Philippine Navy and Hyundai Heavy Industries have placed in IAI. We are honored to be an integral part of this important program and supply our operational, combat-proven systems to our friends in Asia.”
