Eurosatory 2014

Tactical systems for soldiers (ES14E3)

18 June 2014

Part of the Finmeccanica group, Selex ES (Hall 6, Stand E437) is showing a selection of its advanced communications, sensors and jammers, with the accent on tactical systems for use by soldiers in the field.

Exhibits include the SWave HH single-channel software-defined radio (pictured), the Personal Role Radio short-range system, the FrontLine Soldier Radio encrypted voice system and the Sentinel Suite of ruggedised products providing all-IP voice and data services. Selex ES is also promoting the Razor TacSat antenna that provides an on-the-move tactical satellite communications capability in a unit that weighs around 1kg.

For situational awareness and force protection tasks, Selex ES has a range of infrared and electro-optical (EO) sensor systems. Janus is an EO platform that provides observation and fire control capabilities for both ground and naval applications.

Alice HH is a handheld thermal imager using uncooled IR technology, which is also included in the Linx handheld target locator that also incorporates a daylight telescope, eye-safe laser rangefinder and a digital compass. For remote surveillance capability, such as might be required for base protection, Selex ES is offering the Observer Man-Portable self-contained unit.

Finally, Selex ES is displaying electronic warfare devices, such as the Guardian. This protects forces against RF-initiated remotely controlled IEDs by jamming the RF triggering signals.
