Israel and the Czech Republic signed a deal on Thursday awarding ELTA Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a $125 million contract for the Czech Mobile Air Defence Radar Program. The systems are to be delivered, tested, licensed and accepted in operational condition during 2021-2023 in the Czech Republic, and will be adapted to operate in accordance with Czech and NATO command and control systems, IAI said in a statement.

The package includes eight ELTA ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radars (MMR) with air surveillance, air defense, and artillery capabilities.

The Israeli side is to transfer state-of-the-art technology and know-how, says IAI, while giving Czech industries a significant role in the project, amounting to 30% of the contract value.

The Czech companies are to be involved in “all parts of the program including design, manufacturing, assembly, integration, testing, and life-time maintenance of the systems,” said the statement, adding that “certain security components will be manufactured locally.”

The ELM- 2084 MMR radar is known as the “Iron Dome” system radar, noted Yoav Tourgeman, IAI VP and CEO of ELTA, and currently includes over 100 systems contracted worldwide including in NATO countries.

“We are proud and honored to supply the best combat-proven multi-mission radar to the Czech armed forces,” said Tourgeman. “These radars will propel forward the Czech Air Force capabilities and enable it to confront the most advanced aerial threat.,”

He also expressed the belief that that the MADR program would “pave the way to additional cooperation between the Israeli and Czech defense industries.”
