ELM-2311 is a compact, mobile artillery weapon radar and weapon launch locator.
Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1) has successfully demonstrated the ELM-2311 tactical C-RAM radar during a live fire test. The test included the firing of several artillery shells, radar detection and tracking of the incoming projectiles, and identification of the launch and impact point coordinates with high accuracy.
The ELM-2311, developed by IAI subsidiary Elta Systems Ltd., is a compact, mobile, multifunction artillery weapon radar and a hostile weapon launch locator C-Band radar system. The radar includes an advanced 3D active electronically-scanned array (AESA) which requires only two operators. With either a persistent surveillance sector mode of 120º or a 360º rotating mode, the ELM-2311 C-RAM radar can provide protection and artillery fire assistance at the battalion level.
“During the tests the radar performed well above expectations, ” said IAI EVP and Elta president Nissim Hadas. “We were able to tailor a unique and much needed solution for the task of artillery assistance and tactical ground force protection.”
