NATO is enhancing its air defense radar capabilities with the addition of Lanza 3D longe-range deployable radar from Indra of Spain.

The contract to procure two of the systems was issued by the NATO Communications and Information Agency and is worth about $24.2 million. Exercise of a contract option for a third LTR-25 system would boost the total value of the deal to about $39.6 million.

The deployable air defense radars will be part of NATO's Air Command and Control System to supplement existing static installations in surveillance in areas of special interest, including the launch of ballistic missiles.

Indra said a LTR-25 unit is composed of a primary radar that is integrated with a secondary radar and an operation and power generation shelter.

A system can be fitted into a single Hércules C130-type aircraft for transport or in two trucks.

The system is the fifth generation of L-band Lanza radar family. Among its features are digital beam forming, direct radio frequency sampling, monopulse technique in elevation and azimuth and anti-clutter capabilities.
