Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) presents three radar-based tactical systems to respond to the latest challenges of land warfare. All three systems were developed by ELTA Systems, an IAI group and subsidiary.
1. ELM-2138T Tactical Counter Rockets, Artillery & Mortars (C-RAM) System
The ELM-2138T is a mobile, autonomous tactical Counter Rockets, Artillery & Mortars (C-RAM) system. It is designed to respond to evolving RAM threats in land operations, and support a variety of ground forces missions, including force protection, fast response to enemy-attack and friendly-fire correction.
Installed on All Terrain Vehicles (ATV), the system consists of a dual-band radar system to acquire and track trajectories of ballistic munitions such as rockets, artillery and mortars.
The ELM-2138T calculates the launching point and predicts the point of impact. Whenever a threat to friendly forces is detected, a warning is sent to the area's control center and to the interception systems to respond to the threat and its source.
2. ELI-3302 ISRV - Lightweight ISR Vehicle ("Black Granite")
The ELI-3302 ISRV (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Vehicle) is a lightweight, modular, mobile day and night surveillance system, designed to operate in rough terrain and provide ground forces with battlefield surveillance information.
The ISR vehicle detects, identifies, and tracks targets in the area under surveillance. By continuously monitoring the target's movements a real-time situation awareness picture is created.
A sensor suite, consisting of motion detection radar integrated with day and night electro-optical sensor, a COMINT sensor and a fire source locator, provide the necessary information for decision makers.
3. ELM-2026B VSHORAD (Very Short Range Air Defense Radar)
The ELM-2026B VSHORAD (Very Short Range Air Defense Radar) is a mobile, lightweight, X-band 3D tactical air-defense electronically-scanned radar.
This radar system provides early warning and target data to surface-to-air defense systems. It detects and tracks a wide variety of low RCS targets such as low flying fighters, UAVs, ultra light aircraft and hovering helicopters. The system provides a real-time air-situation picture, enabling field commanders to respond optimally to each specific threat.
IAI said: "The new generation of tactical systems was designed according to authentic feedback that we have received from field commanders, based on their experience in ground operations. This process results in highly effective systems that operate as key elements to the missions' success".
