The following solutions are making a real-size appearance for the first time in India:

  • HERMES 450 -The backbone of the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) UAS fleet 
  • HERMES 90 - High performance, low cost combining the performance of a tactical UAS with the robustness and mobility of mini UAS
  • MRJ - Electronic Warfare system that blocks Remote Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIEDs) activated against armoured and VIP vehicles
  • BRIGHTNITE - Lightweight compact sensor enables a new level of operational flight, in all night and low-visibility conditions

The following highlights can be found at the company’s booth:

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Elbit Systems is a leading provider of high performance turnkey UAS solutions, including advanced air vehicles, ground control stations and intelligence management centres. In the maritime configuration, the HERMES 900’s payloads' suite includes maritime surveillance radar, AIS, electro-optical (EO) multi-sensor payload and electronic surveillance systems, up to 350 kilogrammes. It has the endurance to cover vast ocean areas, and has redundant LOS and satellite communications links and radio relay, enabling the operator to ‘talk through’ to vessels at sea. The aerodynamic efficiency of the HERMES 900 enables frequent changes in flight profiles, enabling visual identification of vessels at sea in addition to the ISAR capability provided by the radar. Satellite communication enables it to fly to mission areas at extended ranges as far as 1,000nm from shore.

A Display of Future Soldier Solutions:

DOMINATOR-Light Dismounted (LD) is a soldier centric solution, based on the vast experience accumulated by the DOMINATOR IICS solution, geared specifically for the tactical dismounted infantry soldier and Special Forces. Enabling full situational awareness via network-integrated information systems, this unique solution provides superior mobility due to its reduced size, weight and power (SWaP). The extremely lightweight Dominator-LD is the ultimate command and control (C2) solution for the individual soldier level.

DOMINATOR-LD is comprised of Elbit Systems' RAPTOR rugged, all-in-one wearable computing unit, the TORC2H –D C2 application and the highly advanced Tadiran PNR-1000A, a compact, lightweight, personal network radio. An add-on capability for a comprehensive on-the-move situational awareness picture is the JS Eyepiece handheld display unit. The new solution includes a load cartridge system for the fighting soldier, designed based on years of experience and lessons learned in fielding digital soldier systems in operational environments.

The following advanced EO systems are presented as part of the DOMINATOR- LD solution:

  • CORAL-CR is a hand-held 3-5┬Ám FPA thermal imaging camera with continuous optical zoom and the addition of an integral digital compass, GPS receiver and a laser rangefinder.
