The signing of the contract was confirmed to CTK by company spokeswoman Lenka Reichova.

The NATO headquarters in Brussels put up the tender last year.

This March, Vera-NG was placed on the list of authorised equipment of the Czech military which opened the road to its use by other NATO members.

ERA has been a member of the Omnipol group since 2011. It has delivered over 100 systems for the civilian and military sectors to 48 countries.

ERA manufactures surveillance technologies for air control and air traffic. Vera is its most known product. It is able to detect the presence of a hostile radar and determine its type without being detected itself.

It can watch up to 200 aircraft, being able to determine very accurately the distance and altitude of the target.

It is an updated successor to the well-known Tamara system.
