Elbit Systems unveils newest addition to Dominator IICS family

17th October 2012 - 16:49 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems has launched the newest member of its Dominator Integrated Infantry Combat System (IICS) solution family, the Dominator-Light Dismounted (LD). The lightweight version is designed specifically for the tactical dismounted infantry soldier and special forces.

Dominator-LD is a soldier centric solution, designed as a command and control (C2) solution for the individual soldier level that complements the command level Dominator IICS.

Enabling full situational awareness via network-integrated information systems, the system provides advanced mobility due to its reduced size, weight and power (SWaP). It is comprised of Elbit Systems' RAPTOR rugged, all-in-one wearable computing unit, the TORC2H –D command and control application and the Tadiran PNR-1000A, a compact, lightweight, personal network radio. An add-on capability for a comprehensive on-the-move situational awareness picture is also available in the JS Eyepiece handheld display unit.

The new system includes a load cartridge system for the fighting soldier, and has a modular design, enabling a small number of components to be configured in the field in various ensembles, to support different operational needs. Dominator-LD weighs less than 1kg for over 24 hours of operational use.

According to the company, when outfitted with Dominator-LD, ‘soldiers can send and receive information in real-time, view an up-to-the-minute common operational picture, access live videos from either external or on-body sensors and transmit images and positions back to the command post and colleagues’.

The system’s modular design and open architecture also enables growth potential through integration with Battle Management System (such as Elbit's TORC2H) and coalition forces as well as with all of the Dominator IICS systems and sub-systems; including the Skylark I-LE Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), the Mars un-cooled thermal imaging camera, the Coral thermal imaging camera, and the S-NAV soldier navigating system.
