IAI details SIGINT/COMINT orders

8th February 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) will provide signals intelligence (SIGINT) and communications intelligence (COMINT) solutions to customers in Europe and Asia, the company announced on 8 February.

The unnamed European customer has ordered a COMINT system for real-time intelligence information at tactical and strategic levels. The solution is designed to cope with dense communications networks by scanning, locating, analysing and monitoring all communication transmissions within the tactical arena.

To the unnamed Asian air force customer, IAI will supply an advanced SIGINT suite consisting of the ELK-7071 COMINT and ELL-8385 electronic intelligence (ELINT) systems. These systems will be installed on the customer's existing aircraft to provide real-time airborne, ground and maritime intelligence information at the tactical and strategic levels. This order represents an upgrade from the customer's existing ELTA ELINT system to a full SIGINT suite and a new SIGINT suite installation in an additional aircraft, to provide comprehensive aerial intelligence capabilities.

The ELK-7071 is designed to scan, locate, analyse, and monitor ground, airborne and naval communications transmissions characterised by short duration and advanced signal forms; while the ELL-8385 ELINT system operates in dense radar environments, in order to disseminate intelligence reports, generate real-time Electronic Order of Battle and provide tactical and strategic intelligence that can be integrated into a national intelligence database.

The contracts are worth a combined $30 million.
