Rafael Advanced Defence Systems will showcase its wide range of defence solutions for naval, land and air applications at the DEFEA 2021, defence exhibition which will be held from July 13-15, at Metropolitan Expo, Athens, Greece.
Rafael will showcasing its new Sea Breaker at DEFEA 2021.
The new 5th Generation, Maritime & Land-based Long-Range Attack Weapon System which was unveiled in June.
Sea Breaker can undertake surgical, pin-point precision strikes from stand-off ranges of up to 300 km and the naval and artillery unit force-multiplier is designed to overcome the modern warfare arena challenges.
Sea Breaker features an advanced Imaging Infra-Red (IIR) seeker, making it ideal for engagement of maritime and land targets, stationary or moving, in advanced Anti Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) arenas, and in littoral or brown water, including archipelago, as well as for engagements in which previous generation RF-seeker-based missiles are not effective.
Rafael will also showcase its succesful SPIKE Family of missiles at DEFEA 2021, including the Spike Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) which is an electro-optically guided multipurpose missile that can engage targets out to ranges of up to 32 km with pinpoint accuracy and midcourse navigation.
The weapon system can be launched from land, air and naval platforms. Equipped with a variety of warheads, a wireless data link to the missile, unique advantages of hitting non-line of sight (NLOS) targets and the ability to switch between targets and abort missions.
Spike NLOS can be operated in both offensive and defensive scenarios and can provide real-time tactical intelligence and damage assessment.
Spike NLOS is designed to be integrated into the modern battle arena and can receive target location from an embedded TAS system, external sensors, C4I center or UAVs.
Rafale is also presenting its leading position in the air-to-surface munition domain, using advanced electro-optical scene-matching technology and the world’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI), to enable Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) and autonomous guidance of the weapon to its target, independent of GPS reception, which are part of Rafael’s Smart, Precise Impact and Cost-Effective (SPICE) family of air-to-ground weapons.
Rafael’s combat proven SPICE can operate day and night, 24/7, under all-weather conditions, generating and striking targets at significant standoff ranges. The latest addition to the SPICE family is theSPICE-250, which is a unitary munition that can be equipped with either general purpose or penetration warheads to engage targets from standoff ranges up to 100 km.
It is capable of hitting and destroying targets with pinpoint accuracy of CEP better than 3 meters, at high attack volumes, dramatically avoiding and reducing collateral damage. Mission-planning can be enabled both on ground or in real-time in flight. SPICE variants include, the SPICE-1000 kit for 1000 lb. class general purpose or penetration warheads, such as MK-83 and RAP1000. The SPICE 1000 stand-off range is up to 120 kilometers; SPICE-2000 kit for 2000 lb. class general purpose or penetration warheads, such as MK-84, RAP2000 and BLU-109. SPICE 2000 stand-off ranges are up to 60 kilometers.
Rafael will also be showcasing the TROPHY Active Protection system for armored vechicles, the world’s first and only operational, combat-proven, safety-certified APS, in serial production and, in service on the IDF Merkava tanks and NAMER AFV’s, recently sold and delivered to the US Army and Marines for four Abrams brigades, to the German Army for its Leopard tanks, and integrated on more than a dozen platforms around the world.
Trophy has also been selected for integration on the UK Challenger-3 MBT. TROPHY is under contract for some 2000 systems for several users.
Rafale will showcase its combat-proven multi-layer air defence systems, including C-Dome, which is the naval adaptation of the renowned, combat-proven Iron Dome. C-Dome is operational with the Israeli Navy and designed to protect strategic naval and land assets against advanced aerial, ballistic and surface-to-surface threats.
Rafael’s Counter UAv solution is an innovative end-to-end system designed to provide effective airspace defense against hostile drones (Micro and Nano UAVs) used by terrorists to perform aerial attacks, collect intelligence, and other intimidating activities. C-AUV has 360° circular coverage and is designed to detect, track, and neutralize drones classified as threats flying in No-Fly zones. It has a very fast response time, it causes minimal collateral interruptions to the surrounding urban environment, with maximum safety to friendly aircraft.
Stunner is an affordable and lethal air defense interceptor against long-range artillery rockets (LRAR), short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM), cruise missiles (CM) and traditional air defense threats. The system provides optimum protection for the homeland as well as for forward deployed forces. It is part of the David’s Sling Weapon System which is comprised of a Battle Management & Command Array, as well as an Interceptor Array.
With more than 25 years of experience in defence publishing, Global Business Press and its industry leading titles Asian Defence Technology, Asian Airlines & Aerospace and Daily News are the leading defence publications in the region, present at more international shows and exhibitions than any other competing publication in the region.
