Slovakia will become the third user, after the Czech Republic and Hungary, of the multi-task three-coordinate radar stations from the ELM-2084 family. The contract covers the delivery in 2023-2025 of a batch of three-coordinate radar stations for detecting airborne targets: six ELM-2084MS, five ELM-2084S and six ELM-2138M. The devices will be delivered by IAI's subsidiary Elta Systems
It also provides for technology and know-how transfer as well as industrial cooperation with the Letecké opravovne Trenčín (LOTN) company, which supports the operation and repair of aircraft of the Slovak Armed Forces.

The new radars will replace 24 devices: P-37MSK dual-coordinate radars (index GRAU 1RL139, in NATO Bar Lock code), three-coordinate radars SZT-68MSK (also marked as 36D6; index GRAU19ZS6, in NATO Tin Shield code), PRW-17 Linejka altimeters (index GRAU 1RL-141, in the NATO Odd Group code) and the RL-4AMMorad-L dual-coordinate mobile radar of Czechoslovak and Soviet production. Israeli radars will provide 24/7 air traffic control (ATC) and a continuous air surveillance (ASP) over Slovakia as part of the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defense Command System (NATINAMDS).
