These systems will be used to protect from airborne drones some sensitive facilities and sites on which British armed forces are deployed. The British Army is the first customer for this new and advanced Drone Dome system.

RADA's MHR provides 360-degree surveillance and detects the drones at distances of 3-5 kilometers. Signal intelligence system along with electro-optical sensors, provide additional layers of threat classification and identification, while RF jamming provides the soft-kill layer of this solution.

Each system includes radars, electro-optical (EO) identification and signals intelligence systems and electronic jammers that disable the drone's datalink or navigation systems.
