    The Israel Navy’s new “MF-STAR” radar, manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), is designed to counter the Yakhont (S-800) anti-ship missiles used by Syria and Hizbullah.

    It has a greater range than previous systems, can mark more targets at once, and can detect enemy ships hiding among dozens of friendly or non-combatant vessels.

    “The new radar can detect and handle sea, air and land targets, including missiles and enemy aircraft,” a Navy source said.
