RADA Technologies, a leading provider of advanced radars for land applications, opened its new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Germantown, Maryland.
According to company officials, the 25,000 square foot office currently houses 30 employees, with plans to reach a total of 80 employees in the next three years.
“As the threats facing U.S. service members around the world continue to evolve, RADA USA selected Germantown, Maryland, for its close proximity to its core customer base of U.S. military and civilian agencies,” company officials said."
The company’s pulse-Doppler, multi-mission Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars detect all types of aerial vehicles, including Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUASs), missiles, rockets and mortars. They classify the threats, provide and display tracking, and deliver data to external communications, command, control and intelligence (C4I) and air defense weapon systems over Ethernet,” officials explained.
“The team at RADA is focused on delivering advanced, innovative radar solutions and services that empower American defense agencies to fulfill their mission, and the opening of our new headquarters and manufacturing facility enable us to accomplish that in a cost-effective manner,” said Bill Watson, CEO, RADA USA. “Our team is grateful for the assistance of the State of Maryland, the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation and the Maryland/Israel Development Center for their support in bringing our team to Germantown, and we look forward to continuing to work with you all in the years to come.”
RADA USA’s air surveillance radars are the system of choice for current and emerging tactical Integrated Air & Missile Defense weapon systems, whether based on guns, missiles, directed energy, or other threat defeat technologies. Its tactical radar systems are ideal gap-fillers, complementing medium and long-range air surveillance systems. The radars can work in various installation methods depending on the mission: fixed or on-the-move onboard tactical land vehicles or aboard littoral combat and patrol ships.
