Developed by IAI’s ELTA Division, the ALPHA 3D Radar System is a lightweight, multi-function 3D AESA radar, which shares technology with its larger sibling, the MF-STAR radar.

With its modular construction and fully digital software-driven architecture, the ALPHA delivers low LCC together with the cost-effective ability to implement future upgrades, mainly through software updates, ensuring the ability to cope with new threats over the system's extended service life. IAI’s family of naval radar technology is operational and combat-proven in navies around the world.

The ALPHA 3D Radar System will be fully integrated with the Combat Management System (CMS) supplied by Hanwha Systems, and will provide an array of advanced multi-mission capabilities for the Philippine Navy.

The lightweight, rotating/scanning, two-dimensional active S-band array radar is suited for installation onboard a variety of ship classes such as Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV), Corvettes and Frigates.

Incorporating advanced technology and robust system architecture, the ALPHA radar employs multi-beam and pulse Doppler techniques as well as cutting-edge ECCM techniques to extract low RCS targets from complex clutter and jamming environments.

On December 30, 2021, the Philippines has confirmed the order of two new corvettes from South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), Philippines Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said.
