Micro SATCOM- ARAN design studio IAI


IAI introduces new Soldier “On -The-Move” (OTM) Personal SATCOM micro-terminal

Compact Phased Array SATCOM for the ground soldiers will be revealed at EUROSATORY 2016. The ELK-1882A “On-the-Move” (OTM) Personal SATCOM micro-terminal provides personal bi-directional voice and data communication for lower echelon ground combatants.

The ELK-1882A micro-terminal comprises a phased array antenna, a Software Design Radio (SDR) module, and an energy module or battery-pack. Operating in the Ku frequency band via commercial geostationary communications satellites, it complies with ITU spectrum density regulations and commercial communication satellite operator standards. Optional applications include VOIP, telemetry, SMS, narrowband communication and relay capabilities, such as combat voice network SATCOM backhaul.

In today’s dynamic battlefield enabling continuous OTM communication for lower echelon Special Forces and dismounted soldiers, as well as for platoon, company and battalion commanders is imperative. Operations of independent small forces frequently take place in locations which are Beyond-Line-Of-Sight (BLOS).

At the present time, these fighting forces rely on either Line-of-Sight (LOS) systems which cannot provide continuous and reliable communications, or on mobile or static BLOS systems. The novel micro-terminal BLOS OTM system enables the existing gap between legacy LOS tactical radios to be closed, and allows for an extension of the current soldier communication network to OTM BLOS. The system is designed for BLOS operations of either mounted or dismounted ground forces. In addition, the same phased array antenna technology is adapted to combat vehicles and airborne systems, using a conformal antenna system.


Drone Guard system


“Drone Guard” system shows increasing sales as Leading Anti-Drone Provider

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is viewing a steadily increasing demand for its Drone Guard detection and disruption counter UAV system, for both military and civilian applications. The recently unveiled system has already been purchased by several customers for critical asset and personnel protection. Numerous potential customers have already attended dedicated demonstrations of the system versus various drone threats, with more demonstrations anticipated for the coming months.

The use of small drones has increased dramatically over the years, making them a potential threat to critical infrastructures, other aircraft and homeland security (HLS), due to their small size, low speed and low flight altitude.  IAI is offering specially designed 3-Dimensional (3D) radars and existing Electro-Optical (EO) sensors for detection and identification, as well as dedicated Electronic Attack (EA) jamming systems for disrupting drone flight.



About IAI’s Drone Guard system: To detect low signature, low-level and low-speed airborne targets, ELTA has adapted to this specific mission its 3D radars, which include the ELM-2026D, ELM-2026B and ELM-2026BF for short (10km), medium (15km) and long (20 km) ranges, respectively, with special drone detection and tracking algorithms, as well as adapting them with EO sensors for visual identification of the target. In order to disrupt the hostile UAV, ELTA has developed advanced adaptive jamming systems which can be used in concert with its detection and identification sensors, or as a continuously operated stand-alone system. The jamming disrupts the drone’s flight and can either causes it to return to its point-of-origin (‘Return Home’ function) or to shut down and make a crash landing.

ELI-3312 IAI


The Novel Armored Vehicle Sensors for Situational Awareness and Rapid Target Acquisition

ELI-3312 sensor suite, is based on electro-optical Hostile Fire Location (HFL) and radar sensors, at EUROSATORY 2016. The system is designed for Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) rapid target acquisition and situational awareness.

Designed by ELTA IAI’s subsidiary, the ELI-3312’s unique combination of RCWS sensors integrating HFL and a Doppler radar, allows for the automatic detection of hostile fire from light weapons, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and enables rapid retaliation by precise counter fire. The lightweight and compact sensor suite permits fast and simple integration to any type of vehicle or weapon type.

Asymmetric warfare is challenging modern mechanised military forces to supply actionable battlefield intelligence and retaliate rapidly against incoming threats (given their growing capabilities and attack angles). The first layer of defense is to use long-range sensors on vehicles to detect threats before those threats can bring their weapons to bear upon the vehicle. Then, by using long-range weapons, the vehicle’s crew can engage and destroy the threat – by using the combined capabilities of long-range electro-optical and radar sensors on the ground vehicle, thus rapidly closing the sensor-to-shooter cycle.

“The main lesson we have learned from recent asymmetric ground battles is that survivability of the armoured vehicle team depends on their ability to rapidly and efficiently detect and retaliate against incoming threats”, Mr. Nissim Hadas, IAI Executive VP & ELTA President explained: “This premise, long ingrained in aerial and naval warfare, is now permeating to the ground-based warfare, and will be a decisive factor in future conventional or asymmetrical combat.”
