The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) is using radars made by Israeli company RADA Electronic Industries to provide its bases with early warning of incoming projectiles, according to an industry source.

The source told Jane’s that three systems using RADA’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar (MHR) family were set up at outlying MINUSMA bases in late November and early December 2018. Each system consists of four ieMHR radars mounted on a tripod to provide 360° coverage of the surrounding airspace.
