Israel’s new radar system is largest yet
Development of the advanced, portable ULTRA-C1 has been completed, and may be used by the IDF in coming years.
Development of Israel’s largest radar system (and one of the world’s largest) was recently completed by Israel Aerospace Industries, and details of its design and capabilities have been released.
The radar system, called ULTRA-C1, is not expected to enter the IDF arsenal anytime soon – but like other radar systems developed by IAI, will possibly be used by Israel in the coming years.
he ULTRA-C1 system, which permits high-frequency scanning operations, including in surroundings with high electromagnetic density, comes in three configurations – regular, large, and very large, to meet every mission requirement.
The standard version can locate drones and enemy planes up to 500 kilometers away, while the more extensive models allow rapid and accurate identification of ballistic missiles launched thousands of kilometers away, as well as enemy satellites.
The radar system allows electronic scanning of the area it’s “watching” in a way that increases accuracy and identification of targets.
The ULTRA-C1 is portable and relatively light for a system of its size.
