Elbit Systems launches IMACS
Elbit Systems has unveiled its newest Integrated Maritime Awareness Concept and Solution (IMACS) suit, developed to answer the unique defense requirements of maritime infrastructure facilities. The company introduced the product in a 4 April 2012 statement.
A modular solution, IMACS enables customisation of various available technologies and capabilities according to specific customer requirements. In order to tailor the comprehensive defense suit for each customer, Elbit Systems has established a unique laboratory, where the use of advanced simulation technologies projects a precise virtual representation of the potential threat scenarios. Based on the relevant customer's operational scenarios, a unique and dedicated ‘protective circle’ strategy is tailored, implemented by an integrated and effective maritime security suit.
According to Elbit Systems, the suit includes Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs), advanced Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems for maritime, aerial and ground missions, maritime patrol aircraft and other advanced systems, all linked via a networked maritime C4I capability to a centralized integrated maritime command station.
The company believes the system will be a vital tool in the fight against maritime terror and pirate attacks, saying, ‘As the developers and manufacturers in-house of almost all the relevant systems, and based on our extensive operational experience in the Command & Control field, we believe we have a unique and effective solution to answer even the most complicated challenges’.
