A live demonstration of Digital Fires, involving mounted and dismounted assets and C4I component, alongside SPEAR MK2, a light 4X4 vehicle mounted, fully autonomous, soft recoil 120mm mortar, are to be presented for the first time at DSEI on Elbit Systems’ booth #S2-320. Having been involved in major UK procurement programmes, including the WATCHKEEPER UAS project and the UK Military Flying Training Systems (MFTS) programme, Elbit Systems aims to keep expanding its UK business by leveraging its global experience and reputation, bringing proven advanced technologies and innovative solutions to meet the specific UK market needs.
Visitors to the Company’s booth will experience a demonstration of a cutting edge, field proven digital fires solution. A scenario comprising of dismounted force, mounted and HQ units, will demonstrate an agile approach to overcome battlefield challenges including complex terrain, short life time targets, adverse visibility conditions, mixed population and force safety. Showcasing a range of Elbit Systems’ capabilities and systems, the live demonstration starts with target acquisition by dismounted assets, seamlessly disseminating ‘call for fire’ data across tactical echelons queuing the deployment and activation of the precision guided munitions from a light vehicle-mounted fully autonomous 120mm mortar system.
The solution will be presented through a number of equipment capabilities consisting of the following major components:
Dismounted Situational Awareness (DSA): Soldiers fully equipped with DOMINATOR, the company’s well tested infantry modern soldier suite comprised of in-house hardware components and battlefield applications integrated with advanced Load Carriage System.
C5I2SR layer: Demonstrating Combat NG the latest generation of Elbit Systems’ combat proven C4ISR system for field artillery and TORC2H System the operational command & control application. All running on advanced military grade End User Devices (EUDs): RAPTOR, ETC and SMARTVIEW.
Radio & Communication Systems: A complete package of SDR systems enabling robust communication across all units and echelons, comprising of E-LynX family of multi-waveform tactical IP radios including MCTR-7200, PNR-1000 lightweight personal network radio, the HF-8000 multi-adaptive HF radio systems for continuous long-range communications, and GRX-8000 ECCM high capacity frequency-hopping radio relay system.
Mounted Fires Asset: A light 4X4 vehicle equipped with SPEAR MK2 Elbit Systems’ computerised and fully autonomous soft recoil 120mm mortar system, GPS and laser guided 120mm mortar, battle-proven high-performance Enhanced Tactical Computer (ETC), SmarTMR the advanced routing and central computing unit, ELSAT 2100 the tactical satellite solution for on-the-move beyond line-of-sight communication, and Elbit Systems’ Laser Warning System (E-LAWS) and Threat Detection System (TDS).
