Indra has won a contract to supply the Royal Air Force with an advanced long-range air defence deployable radar.
The Indra LTR25 L-band radar, say the firm, offers long-range detection capabilities, comparable to those of larger fixed radars, but with the added advantage of being able to operate very quickly and be transported in small aircraft, such as the C-130.
It is designed to facilitate deployments outside national territory, to reinforce the surveillance of a specific area on a one-off basis or to be available as backup in the event that one of the fixed radars is attacked or damaged.
Indra say it is a leading company in the development of radars and one of the main suppliers of this type of solutions for NATO.
According to the firm, its systems also cover surveillance of the whole south-western flank of Europe.
“Indra has delivered over 50 radars in total to countries from five continents, so the capabilities of its teams have been widely demonstrated in all types of scenarios and environments. The company also has experience in the supply of integrated air defense systems for a number of countries.”
Indra will deliver the system later this year.
