Patria showcases ARIS variant

24 May 2019

Patria has showcased a variant of its Advanced Real-Time Intelligence System (ARIS) wideband electronic intelligence (ELINT) receiver at the 2019 EWE exhibition, which was held in Stockholm from 13 to 15 May.

ARIS, which has been in operational use since 2010, is used for technical signal analysis of detected radars and for building emitter databases. It provides an extensive set of automatic electronic support measures (ESM) functions, such as identification of known signals and autonomous signal collection.

The latest variant is server-based ARIS, which is designed for integration into new or existing ELINT/ESM architectures that already have capable receivers, but which require an analysis capability. It is a scalable and modular system with a small form factor, which enables it to be installed in space-constrained platforms such as ships and aircraft.

Server-based ARIS consists of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) server containing a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) board running the ARIS processing firmware. It runs ARIS collector and/or analyst applications, contains storage drives, and runs recorder applications. The system is controlled using the ARIS client application either from a local console or from a standard PC remote workstation via a local or wide area network.
