IAI introduces ADA
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has introduced a new system to protect avionic systems from GPS jamming, the company announced on 31 January.
The system, called ADA, has already won a tender from Israel’s Ministry of Defense for integration into a major Israel Air Force platform. It has also been integrated into a number of platforms operating in Israel and internationally.
Modern navigation, communications, and intelligence collection and electronic warfare systems used on modern platforms, rely on the uninterrupted availability of satellite-based navigation and timing for their operation. Despite this dependency, most platforms do not use electronic counter countermeasures systems to protect those essential assets, leaving them exposed to disruption and degrading the platform’s ability to fulfill its mission.
ADA is based on an electronic architecture and uses digital processing to protect a broad range of Global Navigation Satellite Systems operating on manned and unmanned combat aircraft and helicopters.
Under the terms of the project with the Israeli Air Force, IAI will deliver a turnkey solution based on its multi-channel Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna technology. The ADA integration will ensure the operational continuity of the aircraft fleet, allowing avionic systems which rely on satellite navigation systems to continue uninterrupted operation even under direct electronic attack, when the enemy uses GPS jammers or other methods of interference.
