The 2026B Very Short Range Air Defense Radar (VSHORAD) is designed for detection and tracking of airborne targets, including a wide variety of low radar crosssection (RCS) and low flying targets such as fighter aircraft, ultra-lights and UAVs. The 2026B features a lightweight transportable, X-Band, pulse-Doppler solid-state electronically scanned array.

The radar employs multi-beam elevation coverage through Digital Beam Forming (DBF) and 360° azimuth coverage by antenna rotation, providing accurate target measurements of velocity, range, azimuth and elevation angles target detection and tracking and support of surface-to-air missile weapon systems.

Whether installed as a fixed or mobile radar, the 2026B supports multiple applications including local air defense, border air space protection, and critical infrastructure air space protection. Installation of the radar can be either fixed on the ground or tower, or transportable on a vehicle.
