Israel Aerospace Industries unveiled on Monday its latest tactical radar, dubbed “Green Lotus,” at the Paris Eurosatory defense exhibition.

According to a company statement, the radar provides high detection abilities against rockets, artillery, mortars, aircraft and ground targets.

It is designed to serve both maneuvering and stationary forces.

“Green Lotus” features an array of sensors and combines them into a “highly automated system that detects, tracks, classifies and identifies aerial targets, from very low Radar Cross Section (RCS) mortar, rocket and artillery fire and small drones, to manned and unmanned fixed and rotary-wing aircraft,” according to IAI. “It also performs ground surveillance, detecting and tracking vehicles and slow-moving personnel [on foot].”
