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.
