Elbit Systems tests new AFV
Elbit Systems has concluded testing of its new Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV) as part of the Israeli Ministry of Defense’s CARMEL Future Combat Vehicle project.
The AFV applies autonomous capabilities and artificial intelligence to accelerate decision making and facilitate target engagement with increased rapidity and accuracy.
Using a Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) a crew of two operates the AFV under closed hatches, enhancing capabilities and survivability. The system transmits real-time, high resolution video to the crew’s HMD, providing them with a 360° view of the surroundings, together with relevant symbology and C4I data.
The AFV has successfully demonstrated its capacity to function as an independent high fire-power strike cell, as a networked station for multi-spectral sensing and information fusion, as well as a base platform for operating additional unmanned systems.
According to the company, the AFV is capable of performing combat tasks including off road driving, target acquisition and high precision fire missions, in day and night. As the vehicles is networked, it can carry out missions ordered by commanders and other fighting platforms as well as to transmit missions and intelligence to other forces.
Additionally, the AFV is capable of operating other unmanned platforms such as a VTOL to feed intelligence into the crew’s operational picture or a fighting UGV to perform high risk missions.
