Installed on a best-in-class business jet, the Conformal Airborne Early Warning & Control (CAEW) is equipped with the latest generation of AESA Radar using GaN technology coupled with other advanced sensors and intelligence systems, and offers a NATO interoperability communication suite and IFF system. The company says CAEW, with its integrated AEW&C Sensor Suite, offers exceptional Air Defense and Air Battle Management, with accurate and reliable high-altitude long-range continuous 360o surveillance of all airborne and maritime threats. The system employs a powerful command, control & communication system to integrate the data of the onboard sensors: Radar, IFF, ESM/ELINT together with multiple broadband datalinks.
IAI-ELTAs MARS2 (Multi-Mission Airborne Reconnaissance & Surveillance System), based on the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) ‘Oron’, is the first wide area persistent surveillance, multi-sensor aircraft that provides unprecedented Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. MARS2’s groundbreaking sensors and pioneering data processing capabilities will enable multi-domain coverage of vast areas in real-time for ground and maritime surveillance, regardless of weather or visibility conditions. The state-of-the-art ISR systems developed and integrated in the MARS2 enable to generate comprehensive, real-time intelligence assessments, including detailed assessments of the deployment of enemy forces and terrorist organizations at short and long ranges, during routine and operational activity. The MARS2, installed on a best-in-class business jet, is equipped with advanced radar systems and cutting-edge sensors developed by IAI-ELTA.
