Eurosatory 2016: Elbit Systems Launches Wide Range of New Solutions

At Eurosatory 2016, Elbit Systems is launching:

  • IronVision Helmet-Mounted Display for Armored Fighting Vehicles is a 360° panoramic situational awareness system that enables tank and infantry crewmen to ‘see-through’ their vehicle's armor in real time, creating a complete and clear visualisation of the battlefield (more),
  • SupervisIR Ground-Based Infrared Wide Area Persistent Surveillance System, offerings greater search-area coverage, an easy user interface and pixel perfect visualisation of multiple Regions of Interest (more),
  • PRIMROSE Intelligent Network of Miniaturized Wireless Sensors are comprised of miniaturised, spatially-distributed, bi-directional, remotely monitored sensors. Deployed at the ground level, these standalone, self-powered, intelligent nodes cooperatively detect and track the movements of people, vehicles and other events. Suspicious activities and exceeded limits set off an instant alert, and 
  • SMART Suite Advanced Infrastructure for End-to-End Tactical C4I is a family of products that enable mounted and dismounted forces to maintain the flow of tactical multimedia and data information over heterogeneous tactical networks (legacy, non-IP, IP, etc.), providing a comprehensive application platform for any C4I requirement.



Furthermore, the company presents a wide range of new and advanced systems and solutions reflecting its reputation as a leader in providing end-to-end solutions for the changing requirements of the modern battlefield. The company’s exhibition booth #567,  in the Israeli Pavilion (Hall 6), showcases both new and legacy systems of its cutting-edge solutions for individual soldiers and fighting vehicles, advanced systems and solutions for land and C4I, intelligence,  electro-optics (EO), EW and Protection Systems, as well as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and more. The systems on display showcase Elbit Systems’ capability in providing solutions for new threats and unconventional challenges that have spurred European military forces and additional armed forces worldwide to equip for urban warfare and low-intensity conflicts.

Products on show include:

  • LWS (Laser Warning System) enables the crew to reverse the roles from hunted to hunter. The LWS includes an array of sensors to identify lasing sources with an accuracy ranging between 1 degree on a return-fire platform, and 3 degrees or less on a platform for assisting in threat location and discovery. 
  • WinBMSTM (Weapon-Integrated Battle Management System) is a networked integrated battle management solution that enhances the connectivity and coordination of maneuvering forces at the tactical level, increasing its lethality and survivability. 
  • Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) for Main Battle Tanks (MBT) and AFVs improves the crew’s performance and safety by reducing fatigue and minimising exposure to noise, heat and vibrations while  allowing the vehicle to operate in silent mode in reduced thermal signature. 
  • Life Support Systems (LSS) is an integrated solution providing NBC/CBRN Protection and Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning (HVAC) for AFVs and other military platforms.
