Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries have signed an agreement to supply the Philippine Navy with IAI's ALPHA 3D Radar Systems. The ALPHA 3D Radar will be integrated into the new ships of the Philippine Navy.

IAI is a global leader in the development of advanced naval technologies. Developed by IAI's ELTA Division, the ALPHA 3D Radar System is a lightweight, multi-function 3D AESA radar that shares technology with its larger sibling, the MF-STAR radar. 

With its modular construction and fully digital software-driven architecture, the ALPHA delivers low LCC and the cost-effective ability to implement future upgrades, mainly through software updates, ensuring the ability to cope with new threats over the system's extended service life. 
ALPHA's 3D Radar System will be fully integrated with Hanwha's Combat Management System (CMS). As a result, it will provide an array of advanced multi-mission capabilities for the Philippine Navy. 

IAI's VP and CEO of ELTA, Yoav Tourgeman: "This agreement is a testament to IAI's close partnership and cooperation with Hyundai and the defense ecosystem in Asia. Incorporating IAI's pioneering AESA technology on the Philippine Navy's new ships highlights the Philippine Navy and Hyundai Heavy Industries' trust in IAI. "
