At DEFEA 2021 in Athens this week, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) will exhibit a variety of high-end solutions for defence and security applications, including the BARAK MX air and missile defence system, loitering munitions capabilities and maintenance solutions for C-130 fleets.
Last year, the Israeli MoD leased IAI's HERON system in its maritime configuration to Greece over three years, with an option to purchase the system on lease expiration. The UAS, equipped with maritime patrol radars and satellite communications, offers extended operational endurance in a wide range of applications, including maritime patrol, marine and land border protection, search and rescue, or disaster management.
In addition to UAS expertise, IAI is one of five worldwide centres with expertise in center wing box replacement for the ubiquitous C-130 transporter.
The BARAK MX provides a single integrated solution for defeating multiple simultaneous aerial threats from different sources and at different ranges. The system demonstrates several key capabilities as a result of embedded components: a digital radar, weapon control system, launchers, a range of interceptors, advanced homing devices, datalink communication and system-wide connectivity.
The company’s flagship MMR radar is combat-proven and has extensive operational experience in Israel and around the world. It detects airborne threats, classifies them, calculates their threat level and provides essential data enabling systems to neutralise multiple threats simultaneously.
The loitering munitions family developed by IAI includes the HARPY-NG – a third-generation anti-radar system; the HAROP, a second-generation precision electro-optical attack system; the MINI-HARPY, a dual seeker advanced munitions system; the tactical loitering GREEN DRAGON; and the ROTEM VTOL tactical loitering munition.
