Indra awarded long-range radar contract by RAF

Indra has been awarded a contract to supply an advanced long-range air defence deployable radar to the RAF.

The company was chosen following completion of a competitive tender process with other key players in the industry. Indra will deliver the system later this year, delivering the radar to a tight deadline.

The Indra LTR25 L-band radar offers very high, long-range detection capabilities, comparable to those of larger fixed radars, but with the added advantage of being able to operate quickly and be transported in small aircraft, such as the C130.

The LTR25 is a robust solution designed to facilitate deployments outside national territory, to reinforce the surveillance of a specific area on a one-off basis or be available as a backup in the event that one of the fixed radars is attacked or damaged.

Main supplier to NATO

Indra is a main supplier of radar solutions for NATO. The company has won all the tenders awarded by the Alliance in the last five years. Its systems also cover surveillance of the whole south-western flank of Europe.

Indra has delivered more than 50 radars to countries from five continents, in all types of scenarios and environments. The company also has experience in the supply of integrated air defence systems for a number of countries.
