• Skylark II is a highly covert, small footprint, tactical UAS that is electrically propelled and capable of operating beneath cloud cover.

ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND SIGINT BY ELISRA

A world leader for over four decades in the field of Electronic and Information Warfare as well as Intelligence and C3 systems, Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT Elisra will present:

• SPS-1000-V5 – Radar Warning System is a highly sophisticated airborne self-protection system, offering complete threat programmability, excellent performance and reliability. The system integrates two subsystems: a Self Protection System which detects the classical radars; a Multichannel Superhet IFM Receiver which provides detection and unambiguous identification of modern CW high PRF low ERP and pulse Doppler radars.

• Unified Self Protection Suite for Helicopters & Training Aircraft includes advanced EW capabilities packed into a single LRU, delivering superior identification and location under challenging conditions.

• Foxtrack is a lightweight, man-portable Ground Surveillance Radar System, designed to provide surveillance at medium to long ranges. Carried by a crew of two, it functions in a tripod-mounted configuration or installed on board a vehicle, intended to identify both people and vehicles.

AVIONIC PRODUCTS AND ELECTRO-OPTICS FOR AIRBORNE PLATFORMS

Elbit Systems, with its comprehensive airborne systems capabilities, can provide a single sensor or an entire cockpit avionic suite. The following will be displayed in the Company’s booth:

GUIDED MUNITIONS

• Laser Guided Rocket (GATR) is installed on 68/70 mm rockets to convert them into metric precision guided weapons, for air-to-ground or ground-to-ground missions, against soft or lightly armored stationary or fast-moving targets.

• LIZARD is a laser-based precision guidance kit designed to strike any laser designated target, featuring high precision proportional controls, higher hit probability, with fewer sorties and bombs per target.

TRAINING AND SIMULATION

Elbit Systems builds on over three decades of experience in training and simulation programs and offers comprehensive solutions that span the full military spectrum.

Mission Training Center (MTC) is a unique system that enables linked training between various trainees and platforms, including different platforms of an Air Force at both the interoperable level and ground controllers. With this system, teams are able to train in formations of pairs and foursomes in all aspects of the operational mission. The sessions are fully supervised by flight instructors, who are able to take a central part in the training process.

Elbit Systems’ subsidiary, AEL Sistemas, will display the following in the Brazilian Pavilion, booth 21:

AIRCRAFT UPGRADES

Elbit Systems’ proven capabilities in design, manufacture and integration of advanced avionics in numerous Eastern and Western platforms, trainers and front-line fighter aircraft, ensure enhanced performance and operational capabilities: The following upgrades will be highlighted at FIDAE2012:

Elbit Systems has performed numerous F-5 modernizations, the most recent was for the Brazilian Air Force, unleashing the “Tiger’s” potential, with an advanced fully redundant glass cockpit, including 3-color displays and operational features such as HOTAS operation, MFDs, Weapon Delivery and Navigation Systems, Fire Control Radar, Electronic Warfare suites and the DASH IV Helmet.
