Philippine Navy’s corvettes will have Israel-made ALPHA 3D radar systems owing to a new contract signed between Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries.

Developed by IAI’s ELTA Division, the ALPHA 3D Radar System is a lightweight, multi-function 3D AESA radar, which shares technology with its larger sibling, the MF-STAR radar. With its modular construction and fully digital software-driven architecture, the ALPHA delivers low LCC together with the 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.
