RADA to Open a Radar Production Facility in India
19 August, 2021
"Now is the right timing to develop our Indian market and become a provider of cutting-edge technologies to the Indian Armed Forces”
RADA Electronic Industries from Netanya, Israel, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ADTL, India, to establish a Joint Venture to manufacture and support RADA’s radars in India. RADA envisions this market as a strategic growth opportunity, but following the Indian Government’s policy of “Make in India”, it had decided to establish a strong local presence in partnership with a local defense company, offering tactical radars which are tailored to the requirements of the Indian Armed Forces.
The Indian partner, Alpha Design Technologies (ADTL), is a 1,200+ people-strong, professional R&D and Production Organization, specializes in Fire Control Radars, Surveillance Radars, Tactical Communications, EW and Avionics. “Now is the right timing to develop our Indian market and become a provider of cutting-edge technologies to the Indian Armed Forces,” said Dov Sella, RADA’s CEO.
RADA provides military mini-tactical radars to the armed forces of more than 30 countries. Its radars sit at combat-proven Active Protection Systems (APS) and Vehicle Protection Systems (VPS) which expected to be installed in future combat vehicles og many armed forces around the world, including IDF and the US Army.
