Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and the Czech Ministry of Defence have signed a contract for the sustainability and maintenance of Czech Multi-Mission Radars.

The contract spans 20 years and involves Czech companies, which will act as local subcontractors responsible for a wide range of processes.

IAI’s MMR radars are equipped to handle multiple operations, conducting various missions simultaneously, including air defense against aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and drones, as well as artillery ranging against diverse enemy targets. Additionally, theyhelp in the identification and localization of enemy rocket, artillery, and mortar fire. All these functions are performed while identifying the firing source and expected target location, and guiding interceptor missiles against these threats. The MMR radar serves as the 'brain' behind the most advanced air defense systems, such as the Barak, Iron Dome, and David’s Sling.

The MMR radar is interoperable with NATO systems.
