EL/M-2090

The EL/M-2090 TERRA is an Israeli ground-based very long range early-warning radar system produced by Elta, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries IAI. It is composed of 2 radars: the UHF Ultra and the S band SPECTRA. TERRA's performance is achieved through automatic handover and redundancy between the ULTRA and SPECTRA radars, combined with improved target load sharing, Electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) and severe-weather resilience.[1] The system can be used for ballistic missiles and space objects detection and tracking at very long ranges.[2]
