Elbit to Exhibit Range of Systems at Aero-India Air & Space Exhibition

At the upcoming Aero-India Air & Space exhibition taking place in Bangalore, India on 14-18 February 2017, Elbit Systems will present its holistic approach for winged aircraft protection solutions, intelligence gathering and training and simulation solutions.

The operational systems presented at the exhibit are interconnected with training systems, allowing enhanced readiness of all aircrew as well as mission review.

The following will be highlighted in Elbit Systems' booth:

Training & Simulation

SkyBreaker (videos presented in a training dome): Elbit Systems Mission Training Centre (MTC) is a networked multi-cockpit, mission oriented training centre supporting many aircraft types. SkyBreaker provides realistic simulated battlefield training using all aircraft systems and mission scenarios to enhance all levels of pilot training. The SkyBreaker facility houses a complex networked system designed to provide an entire squadron with the tools to practice modern air combat using SkyScen, a sophisticated computer generated forces (CGF) solution, in a fully integrated military setting.

TARGO (capability demonstration): A sophisticated Helmet Mounted System (HMS) technology that transmits aircraft avionics to the pilots helmet. The Targo solution enables pilots to plan, rehearse, fly and debrief using their personal helmets, providing them with increased situational awareness, safety levels and operational abilities. Targo is available in a stand-alone configuration or fully integrated with the aircrafts avionics, including the Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVA) training solution. Targo is ready to fly, fully stand-alone, requires zero-integration configuration and can be tailored to customer requirements. Targo provides a highly-effective solution for commercial and military platforms, including fighter aircraft, air lifters, transport and trainer aircraft, as well as emergency services and general commercial aviation fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

Winged Aircraft Solutions

HPS - Helmet Pointing System (capability demonstration): The HPS features enhanced situational awareness including day & night color symbology and innovative line-of-sight technology. It is a proven solution for utility, multi-role, combat and maritime helicopters, operating on over 7,000 helicopters world-wide. HPS offers intuitive color 3D conformal symbology that superimposes mission symbols onto the outer world scenery. This allows sorties to be carried out in degraded visual environment (DVE) conditions, when outside-cockpit vision is limited by bad weather, sandstorms, sea spray, brown outs or white outs.

EW Self Protection and SIGINT Solutions

ReDrone is an advanced anti-drone protection system designed to detect, identify, track and neutralize different types of drones at a designated airspace.

ReDrone (mock up) is an advanced anti-drone protection system designed to detect, identify, track and neutralize different types of drones at a designated airspace. The system is capable of separating a drones signals from its operators remote control signals, as well as pinpointing both the drone and the operators directions. The advanced detection system provides 360-degree perimeter protection and complete, up-to-the-minute situational awareness. It can also deal with several drones simultaneously. After detecting a target, the ReDrone system disrupts the drones communication with its operator, blocks its radio and video signals and GPS positioning data, and sends it off track, preventing it from carrying out an attack. ReDrone's infrastructure is designed for easy and rapid installation in different application areas and terrains, and is suitable for operation in all weather conditions. Its digital control unit, which is based on Android, features an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface.

Light SPEAR a self-protection jammer system for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Light SPEAR is suitable for UAS platforms due to its extremely lightweight. The system improves the UAS survivability and meets the growing world demand to operate and collect accurate intelligence in a highly hostile environment. This compact ESM & ECM solution is based on multiple DRFM channels, working in parallel and covering a wide spectrum. The system's 3U VPX standard allows simple integration with an array of transmitters and platforms and its low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) consumption makes it an ideal EW system for multiple operational platforms.

PAWS Family Next Generation Infra-Red (IR)-based Passive Warning Systems PAWS is an operationally proven comprehensive, turn-key solution for fixed and rotary, military and civilian airborne platforms. The sophisticated IR Missile Warning Systems (MWS) enhances airborne platform survivability by providing early warning of the presence of threatening missiles - by automatic management of all types of applicable countermeasures available on board. PAWS delivers cutting edge protection against the most challenging modern and evolutionary threats. PAWS IR- CENTRICs capabilities extend airborne superiority by maximizing platform safety and by providing enhanced mission support. The PAWS family of systems operates as a stand-alone, self-contained system, as a part of All-in-Small or as part of third party's EW Defence Aid Suite (DAS).

Emerald AES-210V is a modular airborne system that detects, identifies and locates ground-based airborne and ship-borne radars as well as communication emitters. AES 210 is designed to meet the full range of UAS tactical and strategic mission requirements, effective even in the most hostile scenarios. Emerald is lightweight and easy to install and to remotely operate from a ground control station.

Tactical Video Data Link (TVDL) is a video and data receiver/transmitter system especially designed for deployment on combat helicopters. As a true video relay, fully interoperable with the latest remote video terminals, the TVDL enables displaying real-time surveillance imagery and data captured by UAS payloads or ground-based sensors, as well as imagery captured by onboard payloads, directly in front of the aircrew, and simultaneously transmitting the received video and data to tactical ground forces and to other helicopters.

Intelligence & Electro-Optic Systems

Da-Vinci is a man portable, multi-rotor mini-UAS platform. Designed and built from the ground up, with a real-time HD data-link, various payloads and unique control software, it is a powerful tool for a variety of missions to support military and paramilitary forces. It can be deployed almost anywhere and in a wide range of weather and terrain conditions. The Da-Vinci features an automatic takeoff and landing capability, operating at an operational altitude of up to 2000 feet and is capable of performing autonomous mission flights for more than an hour.

Skylark I-LEX is a next generation of the legacy Skylark I-LE mini-UAS. This man-portable electric propelled UAS is best suited for organic beyond the next hill reconnaissance, counter insurgency and force protection missions, as well as civil applications including perimeter security, border and coastal surveillance, anti-terror and a variety of law enforcement missions.

Seagull (USV model): A multi-mission, 12-meter autonomous Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) system, Seagull is equipped to perform versatile missions with modular payload suites such as dipping sonar and torpedoes to detect and engage submarines, towed side scan sonar/ SAS and mine identification and neutralization. The Seagull USV is also designed to carry out unmanned maritime missions such as protection of critical sea areas, electronic warfare, hydrographical survey missions and more. Seagull can be operated from manned ships or from the shore.
