RADA Electronic Industries Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radars (MHR), which are embedded in the Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Drone Dome counter-drone solution, will be delivered to the British Army in the coming months. These systems will be used to protect from airborne drones some sensitive facilities and sites on which British armed forces are deployed. The British Army is the first customer for this new and advanced Drone Dome system.
RADA’s MHR provides 360-degree surveillance and detects the drones at distances of 3-5 kilometers. Signal intelligence system along with electro-optical sensors, provide additional layers of threat classification and identification, while RF jamming provides the soft-kill layer of this solution.
Each system includes radars, electro-optical (EO) identification and signals intelligence systems and electronic jammers that disable the drone’s datalink or navigation systems.
The system can direct its soft kill jamming capability across a narrow area to avoid disruption of other legally-operated unmanned systems in the area.
The Drone Dome is capable of disabling an airborne UAS with a two-second concentration from its 5Kw hard kill laser effector, the system is described as having a technology readiness level (TRL) of “around 6-7” and a range of 2 kilometers.
