• Demonstration of the Homeland Security Simulation System (HLS2)
At the show, Elbit Systems will present a demonstration using its Homeland Security Simulation System (HLS2), depicting various crisis management events and scenarios. The events will be managed in several phases, from detection to surveillance, analysis, management and finally response. The HLS2 provides a complete, virtual and constructive training tool for HLS organizations focused on command and control of security events and crisis management. It enables multidisciplinary training for emergency medical support (EMS), search and rescue, firefighters, rescue and NBCR teams, sensitive infrastructure management and more. Based on highly advanced simulation technology, the system features decision making simulators, control room training and debrief capabilities.

• Miniaturized model of the Mission Training Center (MTC) – is a unique system that enables linked training between various trainees and platforms, including different platforms of an air force as well as at an interoperable level and ground controllers. MTC enables teams to train in formations of pairs and foursomes, in sessions fully supervised by flight instructors, who are able to take a central part in the training. The system enables integration with other training systems, such as trainers for UAS operators and ground forces. The system also enables connection among different training centers, separated geographically, by using standard interfaces with minimum transport delay between sites.

LAND AND C4I SYSTEMS

Elbit Systems Land & C4I-Tadiran, backed by four decades of across-the-board battle-proven expertise and experience, will showcase the following:

• Tadiran PNR-1000A – a new advanced, compact and lightweight Personal Network Radio that integrates high-quality intra-team voice, data video communications and provides cutting edge C4I capabilities. Especially designed to provide continuous communications in urban warfare and highly suitable for the micro-tactical levels, Tadiran PNR-1000A provides availability and connectivity that is crucial to the mission’s success.

• SDR-7200 – a true software defined radio, with the potential to revolutionize battle group communications via fewer radios with more capability. Capable of simultaneous voice and data operation, on a single network of only 25Khz bandwidth at VHF frequency band with data transfer rates of up to 115.2 Kbps, the SDR-7200 enables the reception and transmission of live video feeds.
