MILIPOL 2015: IWI Reveals eLog Pistol Configuration

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI), a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for law enforcement agencies as well as governments and armies around the world, revealed its pistol configuration for the eLog comprehensive small arms management and control solution on Aisle D, Stand 123. The system allows Law Enforcement and Special Forces full control of their weapons arsenal, assuring that pistols will be ready for use when needed.

eLog, a comprehensive small arms management & control solution, digitises the performance of every weapon system, providing precise, previously unavailable information, and allowing superior small arms and spare parts inventory and maintenance management at all levels, including theft alerts. The eLog system consists of three main components: weapon-embedded sensor modules, terminals that collect available data, and armorer management software. The Concealed Sensor Module records the firearm's real-time operation and performance, including the number of shots fired, the weapon's serial number, and the last shooting record. Operated by a replaceable coin battery with an average cycle of at least three years, the sensor communicates with the terminal reader via RF technology, transmitting within a range of up to 40 metres.

"The responses which began immediately following the launch of our unique solution – about six months ago – have been exceptional, as are the non-stop customer inquiries," Uri Amit, President and CEO informed MT. "It seems there is a general understanding that this control over weapons arsenals, whether law enforcement or military, can critically affect the readiness of the forces in real time, drastically reducing battlefield mishaps – and ultimately can enable significant savings in logistics and maintenance."

"The solution is currently undergoing an evaluation process by a number of police forces and armies; and was recently acquired by a prestigious Special Forces unit. Following the need that we have identified and inquiries from customers, we have expanded the solution, which now is available for all types of pistols," Amit further stated.

The solution, suitable for all types of pistols, was demonstrated at the exhibition on JERICHO and Glock pistols. In addition, the company presented its entire portfolio, including the newcomers - the DAN .338 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle and the NEGEV NG7 LMG.

The Mobile Terminal Reader, a rugged PDA that collects the recorded data, can simultaneously read data from a specific group of weapons. The computer-based Armorer Management Software provides a detailed view of each weapon's status and performance, and generates recommendations or modifications for maintenance and repair. Locations of stored weapons are continuously verified, with alerts sent regarding unauthorized removals.

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI), located in the center of Israel, has been a world leader in small arms for over 80 years. IWI is a member of the SK Group, which is composed of companies that develop and manufacture a wide array of military products for governmental entities, armies, and law enforcement agencies around the world. IWI’s best-known products include the TAVOR, X95 (Micro TAVOR), and GALIL ACE Assault Rifles, the GALIL Sniper Rifle, the DAN .338 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle, the NEGEV Light Machine Gun 5.56 and 7.62 mm, the legendary UZI SMG in its latest evolution – UZI PRO, and the JERICHO pistols – which have all been considered weapons of choice by military units and top law enforcement agencies around the world. The company’s firearms are developed in close collaboration with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF): IWI and the IDF join forces in developing these weapons, whose final configurations are the product of ongoing interaction, field tests, and modifications, resulting from combat requirements and experience. All IWI weapon systems are in compliance with the most stringent military standards (MIL-STD) and ISO 9000 standards.
