Eurosatory 2016: Novel Armoured Vehicle Sensors for Situational Awareness and Rapid Target Acquisition by IAI

At Eurosatory 2016, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) introduces the ELI-3312 sensor suite, based on electro-optical Hostile Fire Location (HFL) and radar sensors, designed for Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) rapid target acquisition and situational awareness.

Designed by ELTA IAI's subsidiary the ELI-3312's combination of RCWS sensors integrating HFL and a Doppler radar, allows for the automatic detection of hostile fire from light weapons, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and enables rapid retaliation by precise counter fire. The lightweight and compact sensor suite permits fast and simple integration to any type of vehicle or weapon type. (Photo: IAI)

"The main lesson we have learned from recent asymmetric ground battles is that survivability of the armoured vehicle team depends on their ability to rapidly and efficiently detect and retaliate against incoming threats," Nissim Hadas, IAI Executive VP & ELTA President, explained. "This premise, long ingrained in aerial and naval warfare, is now permeating to the ground-based warfare, and will be a decisive factor in future conventional or asymmetrical combat."
