JNS.org – Israel Aerospace Industries and Hyundai Heavy Industries signed an agreement to supply the Philippine Navy with IAI’s Alpha 3D radar systems, the Israeli defense company announced on Tuesday.

“The systems will be integrated on the Philippine Navy’s new Corvette ships,” IAI said in a statement.

Developed by IAI’s Elta Systems, the Alpha 3D radar weighs little and can serve multiple functions, described IAI. It can implement future upgrades through software updates, ensuring the ability to cope with new threats over the system’s life cycle, according to the company.

“IAI’s family of naval radar technology is operational and combat-proven in navies around the world,” said the company.
