Elbit, DA-Group to offer GNSS immune technology
Elbit Systems and DA-Group have partnered to offer immune solutions to global navigation satellite systems, Elbit Systems announced on 26 April.
Under the agreement, DA-Group will manufacture and market Elbit Systems’ Immune Satellite Navigation System (ISNS). ISNS offers continuous GPS operation by providing comprehensive jamming immunity over extensive geographical areas for multiple satellite channels, handling multiple interfering signals and/or jammers that operate on concurrent frequencies. ISNS is compatible with all types of GPS systems, without prior knowledge of the locations of GPS satellite or GPS receiver antenna.
ISNS has been designed for a wide range of land, sea and airborne applications, in the defence and in other governmental areas.
Sami Kotiniemi, CEO of DA-Group, said: ‘DA-Group is pleased to start collaborating with Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT-Elisra, a clear industry leader. The ISNS solution is in high demand due to rapidly increasing GPS jamming threats.
‘There has recently been GPS interferences in the Nordic region. For example, media reported earlier this year that the GPS navigation of passenger aircraft in northern Scandinavia was repeatedly paralysed, also having an interference impact on the Finnish territory. ISNS superior performance provides effective and efficient solution to this rising operational need’
