“This aircraft delivers superior performance and flexibility that translates into the greatest value proposition in its category,” said Jackson Schneider, President & CEO Embraer Defense & Security. “It can be easily configured to match the customer needs and it can perform a wide variety of missions in a very efficient and cost-effective way.”

The P600 AEW can provide an extended Air Situational Picture by monitoring aerial activity in areas outside ground radar coverage. It can perform various missions such as air defense, early warning, command and control, fighter fleet efficiency, territorial defense, and maritime surveillance.

The P600 AEW can also be configured with the full range of AEW&C sensor and control systems, including; 4th generation Digital AESA AEW Radar, civil and military IFF, ESM/ELINT with Radar Warning Receiver capability, Command & Control, comprehensive communication suite including Data Networks and Satellite Links, and a robust Self Protection Suite (SPS).

A comprehensive communications suite allows for data link capability as well as satellite communication for operations beyond the line of sight data link.

“As part of IAI’s new strategy, we are ramping up our collaborations with global business entities, leveraging the know-how and technology accumulated over decades of aerospace and defense operations. As the pioneers of the bizjet AEW, ELTA Systems has made large strides over the years towards offering cost effective AEW capabilities for the growing and changing global needs,” said Yoav Tourgeman, ELTA President & IAI Executive VP. “Our partnership, forged with Embraer Defense & Security, enables us to introduce a new market segment by offering a cost effective midsize bizjet AEW system.”
