IAI awarded border protection contract

28th March 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is to supply border protection systems to a South American country under a contract announced on 27 March.

The solutions will include the BirdEye650D, BirdEye400 and HoverMast100 UAS for providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) at ranges of up to 150km.

Persistent ground and coastal surveillance radars and a variety of other electro-optics and sensors will also be supplied, along with ELI-3302 Granite ISR vehicles, observation towers and a cyber-system for identification and early detection of various threats along the border.

The systems will be installed at four separate border crossings in the country, with information gathered transferred in real-time to a C4I system at each border crossing location. This C4I system includes data-fusion capabilities for complete control of the area. Data from all the border crossings will be transmitted in parallel to the country's central command.

Phase one of the contract will be carried out by IAI subsidiary Elta Systems.
