COMINT system on Schiebel Camcopter

17th June 2015 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) subsidiary ELTA Systems and Schiebel will demonstrate the ELK-7065 3D high frequency (HF) band COMINT system on the Schiebel Camcopter S-100 UAS in the third quarter of 2015.

The ELK-7065 3D COMINT geo-location and interception system identifies and labels HF signals to create a electronic order of battle picture. 

The system's new HF airborne antenna configuration measures 30x50 cm. Its size makes it suitable for the Schiebel Camcopter S-100 and it is currently undergoing installation.

The COMINT sensor, when installed on the S-100 with automatic ship-borne vertical take-off and landing capability, can operate autonomously or as part of an ISR network in joint operations.

Chris Day, head of capability engineering, Schiebel, said: 'The ELK-7065 3D HF COMINT sensor integrated with the Camcopter S-100 system offers a unique,  highly flexible capability, able to deliver time critical intelligence in the most complex  operational environments.'

Nissim Hadas, executive VP of IAI and president of ELTA Systems, said: 'This pioneering product has been unveiled in the 2013 Paris Air Show and aroused keen interest from multiple customers around the world. We are pleased to cooperate with an outstanding UAS company such as Schiebel and intend to offer this capability to current and future customers of the UAS for maritime and other applications.'
