RADA’s Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR) detects, tracks and classifies all relevant threats that may be fired at combat vehicles – RPGs, ATGMs, and tank rounds. When three or four radars are connected as a system, they provide hemispheric coverage to the Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV) on which they are installed.

This software-defined radar platform, in its RPS-10 mission, is the core sensor for advanced Active Protection Systems (APS). It provides the real-time target trajectory data to the APS at ranges and accuracies which enable automatic and precise interception and neutralization of the threat. Integration with any APS and/or Battle Management System (BMS) is enabled thru the CHR’s standard Ethernet channel.

When the CHR is integrated with Laser Jammers and/or immediate smoke grenades launching system, this RSK-51 system provides Soft-Kill active protection solution against ATGMs.

In addition to target track data, the CHR computes the firing point and impact point of the fired threats, at tactical accuracies.

The CHR’s armored-steel antenna provides resistance to bullets and fragments of the radar and its electronics.

In addition to APS solutions, the CHR software-defined platform can host a variety of operational missions such as Hostile Fire Location, Ground/Surface Surveillance, and combinations of such operational missions.

Key characteristics of the CHR Patform:

  • Pulse Doppler, Software-Defined Radars
  • AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) Antenna based on GaN Amplifiers
  • Extremely High Elevation Angles, up to Hemispheric Coverage
  • On-the-Move (OTM) Operation
  • Non-Ratating, Solid State, Digital Radar
  • Compact and Mobile, for Tactical Applications
  • High Reliability
  • Superior Performance-to-Price Ratio
