The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

17 June 2019 -- The operational and combat proven MMR is the radar of Israel’s "Iron Dome", "David's Sling" and IAI's land-based Barak missile defense weapon systems and has been sold to customers around the world.

“Over the last few years, the types of aerial threats have changed and grown,” Eyal Shapira, vice president and general manager of the ELTA aerospace, defense, and naval division, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday. The Paris Air Show is this week in Le Bourget, France.

The new types of aerial threats that have emerged due to the advancement of low RCS (radar cross section), stealth technology, and platforms like drones and cruise missiles or ballistic rockets and more have created new challenges to the current air defense systems used across the world, Shapira says.
