IMDO, IAF & ELTA commenced inflation of the High Availability Aerostat System & initial testing for the deployment of the Elevated Sensor system in northern Israel. This radar system was developed under a cooperative program between IMDO and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA).

The HAAS is one of the world’s largest aerostats, developed and manufactured by TCOM, a US company specializing in aerostat surveillance solutions. It is designed to carry an improved sensing system, to provide detection and early warning of advanced threats.

“In several flight test campaigns conducted in recent months, we have demonstrated the outstanding capabilities of Israel’s multi-tier missile defense- including against cruise missiles,” said IMDO Director, Moshe Patel. “The IMDO and MDA, together with the IAF and defense industries are constantly improving Israel’s threat detection capabilities. This aerostat system will cruise at high altitudes and provide an exceptional, multi-directional detection capability against advanced threats.” he added.

MDA Director, Vice Admiral Jon Hill: “The Elevated Sensor is another great example of cooperation between the Missile Defense Agency, IMDO and industry partners. The co-developed technology and research is a benefit to both nations. Additionally, this system will further enhance Israel’s advanced threat detection capabilities to maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge.”
