ELM- 2032 Airborne Fire Control Radar installed on a fighter aircraft
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)’s ELTA Systems will provide fire control radars for installation on a foreign customer’s fighter aircraft. After an evaluation process of several possible solutions, the customer has selected the ELM-2032 of ELTA Systems Ltd., IAI’s group and subsidiary, and awarded IAI a $150 Million contract.
The modern ELM-2032 radar system implements advanced technologies that greatly enhance surveillance and fire control capabilities in air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea operation modes. The ELM-2032 is critical to the fighter aircraft’s weapon system effectiveness and accuracy. It detects and tracks maneuvering targets while employing advanced techniques to lock on the target.
The light-weight compact radar was developed while implementing operational feedback of fighter pilots. The ELM-2032 sets very high performance standards with a competitive attractive price. Modular hardware design, software control and flexible avionic interface ensure that the radar can be installed in different fighter aircraft (such as F‑5, Mirage, F‑4, Mig 21, etc.) and can be customized to meet specific user requirements.
An Elta executive said: “ELTA provides its customers highly advanced radar systems for different applications. This specific radar was designed by pilots for pilots. The new contract is an indication of ELTA’s status as a world leading radar systems manufacturer”.
ELTA Systems Ltd., a Group and wholly-owned subsidiary of IAI, is one of Israel’s leading defense electronics companies and a leader in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR), Early-Warning Command & Control, Home-Land Security, Self-Protection and Self-Defense, and Fire-Control applications on board both manned and unmanned aircraft.
