JERUSALEM (BNS): Israeli Artillery corps has successfully tested a new radar system for the first time, as part of their comprehensive implementation by the Ranging Unit of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) Northern Command.

During the trial test, the new radar system successfully pinpointed the rocket locations and its launching sites.

According to the IDF, the system has recently completed a comprehensive round of trials in southern Israel with more accuracy, efficiency and operational ease.

Israeli Air Force has also conducted a joint test to prove the strong compatibility between the new radar system and Iron dome defensive interception system.

“This system has the capabilities to track airplanes and drones, which will provide comprehensive defence against long and short range threats,” an official from GOC Headquarters, said in an official news release.

The Raz radar system is able to immediately and accurately detect rocket launches, determine their threat level according to the ammunition fired and it can then calculate the estimated pathway of the rockets, with a launching range of 150 kilometers.

Additionally, the radar can cope with numerous launches simultaneously. The system will then send acquired information to command and control systems of GOC Headquarters and the IAF. Thus, the IDF would be able to swiftly acquire precise information about the rockets, and effectively halt the attacks.

The new Raz radar system will replace the existing Nuriyut system of Israel Defence Forces.
