South Korea Buys Israeli Radar System

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - South Korea chose an Israeli early warning radar system over a less advanced US system and a French radar system, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz.

The $215 million deal for Israel's Oren Yarok (green pine) radar system represents the most lucrative weapons sale to date between the two countries.

Israel uses Oren Yarok, developed by Elta, as its main early warning radar system.

A previous bid by Israel Aerospace Industries for its Falcon radar system fell through after the US pressured South Korea to buy American.

Meanwhile, another Israeli company, Aeronautics Defense Systems Ltd., recently announced a $28 million deal with Mexico's federal police for airborne surveillance systems.

One system, the Skystar 300, employs a blimp with onboard cameras that provide 24-hour surveillance within its radius.

A second system, the Orbiter, is an unmanned drone, which Aeronautics refers to as a "spy plane."
