Advanced / Enhanced Compact Hemispheric Radar (aCHR / eCHR)

Unrivaled Combat Operational Experience

Sharing the same cutting-edge software-defined, multi-mission, 4D AESA pulse Doppler radar technology, the aCHR and eCHR radars provide outstanding protection for the maneuver force.

While the aCHR is tailored for Active Protection Systems (APS) Vehicle Protection Systems (VPS) and Hostile Fire Detection (HFD), the eCHR is optimized for Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) and Very Short-Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) missions. Both these advanced radars offer best-of-breed radar sensors for air defense and active defense against all types of aerial threats.
