RADA’s Hostile Fire Detection (HFD) and Location radar systems detect, track, classify and locate all types of direct and elevated fires, including: Rockets, Artillery, Mortars (RAM), ATGMs, RPGs, Low-QE Rockets, Small Arms, and more. They classify the threats, calculate the POO (point of origin) and POI (point of impact) with tactical accuracies, display tracking and provide audible and visual warning/alert, as well as data over Ethernet to external C4I systems for alerting the threatened forces.
The radar systems can be based on any member of RADA’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) family of tactical radar platforms – pMHR, eMHR, ieMHR, and also the Compact Hemispheric Radar (CHR) platform. These radar platforms differ primarily in antenna sizes, resulting in maximal detection ranges.
These Hostile Fire Location radars are the systems of choice for advanced tactical force protection and C-RAM solutions, whether on-the-move or stationary. They provide maximal alert time against elevated fire, and accurate POO for preventing further threats coming from the same firing origin.
The radar systems can be integrated with any protection system and other radars/sensors. It may be installed onboard fighting vehicles for deployable, on-the-move force protection, at fixed bases, and also shipborne onboard littoral combat and patrol ships.
A single radar platform provides 90º azimuth coverage using MHR and 120º using CHR.
Hemispheric coverage is achieved when four/three identical and interchangeable radars are employed as a system.
