Israeli weapons manufacturer Elbit Systems unveiled its new tactical radar, DaiR, capable of tracking thousands of targets of different sizes and at different speeds from kilometers away.

Debuting at Eurosatory in Paris, the DaiR is an innovative new radar that makes use of artificial intelligence, sophisticated algorithms and hundreds of digital receivers.

It is capable of simultaneous detection and tracking without having a need for target prioritization.

This lack of prioritizing is indicative of its shift in focusing on multi-domain warfare, a field where target prioritization is more of a liability, according to Elbit.

The DaiR radar is ideal for border management and can track everything from skimmers and drones to helicopters and people.

The DaiR radar is just one of the many new pieces of technology Elbit is set to debut at Eurosatory.

Also being shown off are autonomous drone swarms, the Sabrah light tank turret and the Range Extension & Smart Tail (REST) kit for air-to-surface missiles.
