Elisra to Present New Multi V-Star Advanced Modular Intelligence System at AUVSI

10th August 2009 - 01:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elisra, a recognized worldwide as a leader in EW solutions utilizing a variety of cutting edge technologies, will present its new Multi V-Star at the upcoming AUVSI show in Washington DC, August 10-13. This lightweight system boasts a number of significant, unique, real-time target acquisition and intelligence capabilities, including simultaneous Situation Awareness, from 2 Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

“Our Multi V-Star is an important step forward in Elisra’s ongoing quest to reach new technological frontiers in this fast evolving field of advanced modular intelligence systems,” says Elisra’s CEO, Itzhak Gat. He goes on to say, “The real-battlefield implications of the advantages offered by this new lightweight system are enormous both in-terms of its range of applicable echelons - from individual soldiers to strategic command & control levels – as well as in terms of real time intelligence gathering and target acquisition capabilities. The new system’s advantages thus constitute a real battlefield force multiplier.”

Multi V-Star has been designed from the ground up to provide battlefield operators on the ground with an intuitive situation awareness picture, by manipulating digital maps, tactical overlays, and real-time video streams from multiple UAS airborne sensors. The system is capable of simultaneously handling dual day/night video EO sensor support, and it has automatic map registration, dual targeting surveillance, and dual recording while engaging two UAS platforms. The system allows dissemination of real-time video and metadata to networked battlefield users. 

With the support of two data-links, Multi V-Star can receive transmission (e.g., dual frequency analog and/or digital data link) from two different types of UAS sources, simultaneously. Unlike other systems, Multi V-Star receives video and telemetry, and then correlates the video information with the local GIS map and 3D terrain information. The system’s ability to locate the video on the map affords the creation of real targets in real time. Among its numerous attributes, this system enables field users to produce local targets and Intel at the tactical level, allowing a leap in intelligence capabilities for field tactical users.
