When linked to the previously unveiled EL/M-2090U Ultra UHF radar, the two combine to form Terra, officials from IAI's Elta division told journalists at a facility in southern Israel on 8 November.

The defence company said an unspecified client has been operating Terra for two years and that a number of other potential users are in talks with IAI-Elta.

Both Spectra and Ultra are active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars that are made up of thousands of transmit/receive modules and use gallium nitride technology (GaN) to enhance their efficiency.
