Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled its latest tactical electronic intelligence system (ESM): TacSense (ELL-8395) that delivers performance with minimal SWaP (size, weight and power).
Easy to carry on foot by one person
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled its latest tactical electronic intelligence system (ESM) - TacSense (ELL-8395). TacSense offers unprecedented ESM performance in a compact form factor with minimal SWaP (size, weight and power). This allows the TacSense to be deployed from a wide range of platforms, including tactical ground vehicles and small UAVs. In addition, a manpack configuration allows the system to be easily carried on foot by one person, even over the most challenging terrain. The system's small size and weight also facilitate highly discreet, camouflaged installation at fixed locations.
Increased Exposure to Electronic Threats
TacSense is designed to provide high-performance MSE in tactical scenarios, such as ground force maneuvers, discrete operations from fixed installations, and operations from airborne platforms with limited capacity to hold large sensors. Tactical forces are increasingly exposed to electronic threats on the modern battlefield. These threats include tactical radars used by commando and guerrilla units, ground and air search and target radars, and other electromagnetic activities such as communications and radar jamming. Therefore, it is imperative to provide forces with the means to detect hostile electromagnetic activity - moving the force from "electronic blindness" to full electronic awareness, and thereby ensuring their safety and mission success.
A customer for TacSense
Capitalizing on IAI-ELTA's heritage in the design and development of advanced radar and ESM technologies, TacSense employs the latest techniques to intercept, classify, track and analyze radars, including the latest Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) transmitters. Covering the entire radar frequency spectrum, TacSense provides powerful and comprehensive ESM capabilities, enabling operators to understand hostile radar threats in real time for surveillance and targeting. In addition, it detects forces beyond visual range, and even under deep cover, where radars and EO/IR systems are unable to penetrate. TacSense has been selected for use by an initial customer, and has been contracted to deliver several dozen operational systems.
