El­bit show­cases self­pro­tec­tion sys­tem for UAS at Paris Air Show

SP's MAI - - UNMANNED -

Elisra will launch at the Paris Air Show a self-pro­tec­tion elec­tronic war­fare (EW) sys­tem, well suited for un­manned air­craft sys­tems (UAS). Im­prov­ing the UAS’ sur­viv­abil­ity, the SPS-65V5 sys­tem is based on El­bit Sys­tems EW and SIGINT – Elisra’s vast ex­pe­ri­ence in the de­vel­op­ment of sys­tems in­stalled on­board other plat­forms such as fight­ers, helicopters and util­ity air­craft, al­ready in op­er­a­tional use by the Is­raeli Air Force and other cus­tomers world­wide.

Edgar Mai­mon, Gen­eral Man­ager of Elisra, com­mented: “The in­creased global use of UAS is ac­com­pa­nied by a grow­ing de­mand for sur­viv­abil­ity ca­pa­bil­i­ties for th­ese plat­forms, en­abling pro­tec­tion of both the mis­sion and the plat­form it­self, as well as the unique and valu­able sen­sors car­ried on­board.”

Mai­mon added: “The range of sen­sors in­cluded in this new pro­tec­tion sys­tem will also con­trib­ute to and en­hance the UAS’ in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Like other UAS-re­lated sys­tems de­vel­oped by Elisra, the new pro­tec­tion sys­tem com­ple­ments other El­bit Sys­tems’ de­vel­op­ments, thus pro­vid­ing cus­tomers with a suite of generic so­lu­tions for sur­viv­abil­ity and in­tel­li­gence needs.

The UAS Self-Pro­tec­tion sys­tem is based on the mod­u­lar SPS65-V5, al­low­ing for the ad­di­tion/re­moval of ca­pa­bil­i­ties based on the op­er­a­tional re­quire­ments set by the user and mis­sion re­stric­tions. The sys­tem is ad­justed to UAS use in terms of Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and it can be in­stalled on­board a va­ri­ety of UAS plat­forms, rang­ing from tac­ti­cal to HALE.
