Paris Air Show 2015: Elbit Systems Launches the AIR KEEPER Airborne SIGINT and EW Solution

At the show, Elbit Systems is launching AIR KEEPER, a Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) and Electronic Warfare (EW) solution for aircraft. This new and highly advanced suite  is already operational and provides customers with a unique approach, offering two significantly critical capabilities onboard one platform: Intelligence gathering and EW soft-kill capacities, providing enhanced versatility for a wide range of mission types according to the customer needs.

The AIR KEEPER solution enables any existing cargo, transport or passenger aircraft to be easily integrated, enabling the aircraft to perform missions such as intelligence gathering and EW. Reducing the effectiveness of enemy radar and radio systems, AIR KEEPER has the capability to also target communications, radars and other assets. A cost effective solution, Air Keeper is tailored to the specific customer’s needs and requirements and can be quickly and easily integrated without interfering to the platform functionality/mission.

"The modern battlefield is characterized by asymmetric warfare and low intensity conflicts with quick moving targets which are challenging to target," Edgar Maimon, General Manager of Elbit Systems EW and Sigint Elisra, said. "While traditional SIGINT aircraft are not equipped with soft-kill EW capabilities, AIR KEEPER offers two crucial capabilities onboard one platform, enabling to close the loop more effectively in the same mission. Providing a force multiplier, this unique new SIGINT and EW solution enables to deal more efficiently with targets of opportunity when encountering the hostile environment."
