Elbit Systems will showcase a range of mainly airborne operational capabilities at the upcoming Japan Aerospace exhibition in Tokyo (Booth 7102). The company will be highlighting solutions for Airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Self-Protection and Direct Infrared Counter Measure (DIRCM) Systems, Unmanned Systems for air and sea applications, advanced Electro-optics (EO) as well as systems and solutions for both Rotary and Fixed wing platforms.

For a complete media kit:

MUSIC™ family of Direct Infrared Counter Measures (DIRCM) is a line of systems providing protection against shoulder launched air to surface missiles for dozens of military and commercial platforms, offered in three configurations:

• C-MUSIC designed for civil and VIP large jets.

• J-MUSIC protects large aircraft (heavy transporters, tankers, VIP jets etc) in a single or dual turret configuration.

• Mini-MUSIC protects small and medium rotary and fixed wing aircraft.

Infrared (IR) based Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS) provides warning of threatening missiles and automatic management of countermeasures to airborne platforms.

All-in-Small™ (displayed in multimedia) is a small, lightweight, integrated EW suite in a single line replaceable unit, comprised of an EW Controller, digital Radar Warning Receiver, PAWS IR Missile Warning System, Laser Warning System and Chaff/Flare Dispensing system.

Air Keeper (displayed in multimedia) is a unique solution allowing any existing cargo, transport or passenger aircraft to be converted into a strategic and tactical special mission aircraft.

Immune Satellite Navigation Anti-Jamming Systems (iSNS) (displayed in multimedia) enables reliable, non-stop GPS operation and provides full jamming immunity for multiple satellite channels, handling multiple interfering signals and/or jammers operating on concurrent frequencies.

Unmanned Systems A multimedia presentation of a range of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), from Medium Altitude Long Endurance systems to the tactical and ship-borne.

Naval Systems A multimedia presentation of the company’s maritime portfolio encompassing unmanned systems, maritime C4ISR technologies as well as protection and weapon systems.

SPECTRO™XR is an ultra-long range, day/night, multi-spectral electro-optical intelligence, surveillance, targeting, acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) system that can be installed on rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, aerostats, naval vessels and land applications.

Brightnite™ (Virtual Reality demonstration) is a non-gimbaled enhanced vision system that fusing a real-time video from a multi-spectral sensor and 3D flight and mission conformal symbology to enable operational night flights.

Helmet Display and Tracking System (HDTS) is a mounted system for helicopter pilots, combining innovative line-of-sight (LOS) technology and head-up display (HUD) capabilities, while providing enhanced flight safety and crew coordination.

Low profile HUD is built for advanced fighter jets, offering wide field of view capabilities and utilizing an innovative digital image source offering increased reliability.

Large Area Panoramic HD Airborne Display the system integrates high performance flight and mission data into a single unit, wider and slimmer than ever before.

GATR is a laser guidance kit installed on 70/80mm rockets, converting them into metric precision guided weapons.

SkybreakerTM (displayed in multimedia) is a networked multi-cockpit, mission oriented training center supporting many aircraft types.
