ELTA receives new orders
ELTA Systems has received contracts totalling over $60 million from an unnamed customer in Asia to supply advanced multi-mode radars and an EW protection system.
The solutions will provide combat jets with high performing radar sensing capabilities and protection against potential ground and airborne threats.
Both systems are based on latest Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology. AESA radar provides extended capabilities over legacy technologies such as longer range detection, better target accuracy and multi-target tracking capabilities which allows for simultaneous modes of operation such as air-to-air/ground/sea. For air-to-ground missions, the radar provides very high resolution synthetic aperture radar mapping with ground moving target indicator capabilities.
The EW protection suite protects fighter jets against surface-to-air and air-to-air weapon systems. Upon detection and identification of a threat, a warning is displayed and a type defensive countermeasure is automatically activated. The fighter jet's protection is maintained regardless of the weather and environmental conditions. The EW suite operates autonomously, without any pilot intervention with extremely fast reaction time.
