Czech Republic to buy Israeli radars

Czech Republic has reportedly placed an order for eight Israeli EL/M-2084 3D S-band AESA radars worth $114 million to replace its Soviet-made radars.

The country’s defense minister said on Wednesday that the military has decided to purchase Israeli-made radars for its military.

The eight ELM 2084 MMR radars will be made by the Israeli state-run IAI Elta company. The radars are used in the Israeli Iron Dome rocket defense system as well.

Stropnicky said Wednesday they will help guard the country’s airspace in the altitude from 100 meters to 3,000 meters (330 to 10,000 feet).

Deliveries will start in 2019 and run until 2021.
