Israel's RADA Electronic Industries announced Friday it has received $8 million in accumulated new orders since June 1. To date, the aggregate amount of new orders since the beginning of 2020 has reached $49 million, compared to $31 million during the same period in 2019, the company said.
Out of the new orders, 70% were for RADA’s software-defined tactical radars for counter UAV and counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) operations. The orders are a mix of follow-ons from existing customers, along with orders from new defense customers. Most of these orders are expected to be delivered during 2020. The rest of the orders were for UAV avionics as well as digital video recorders and debriefing stations for fighter aircrafts, according to RADA.
The Israeli company expects revenues to grow in 2020 to over $65 million, representing an increase of over 47% year-on-year.

The orders for avionics underline the stability of this business, at annual revenues level of about $10 million. We reiterate our expectations of sequential quarterly growth and growing operating profit throughout 2020.”
