Israel Aerospace wins $30m intelligence deals

IAI Elta

IAI will supply SIGINT and COMINT systems to customers in Asia and Europe.

Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1) has been awarded $30 million in contracts to supply, SIGINT and COMINT systems to customers in Asia and Europe.

IAI unit ELTA Systems' Ltd. recently received a contract to supply an advanced Communication Intelligence (COMINT) system to a European customer. The system will provide real-time intelligence information at tactical and strategic levels. The COMINT system is designed to cope with the challenges of today’s dense communications networks by scanning, locating, analyzing and monitoring all communication transmissions within the tactical arena.

ELTA was also awarded a contract from an Asian Air Force customer for an advanced airborne Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) suite comprised of the ELK-7071 COMINT and ELL-8385 ELINT systems. These systems will be installed on existing aircraft to provide real-time airborne, ground and maritime intelligence information at the tactical and strategic levels. The customer, who already operates ELTA's ELINT system, decided to upgrade the current system to a full SIGINT suite and install a similar SIGINT suite in an additional aircraft - to provide comprehensive aerial intelligence capabilities.

IAI EVP and ELTA president Nissim Hadas said, "IAI/ELTA has a worldwide reputation as an expert in systems signals intelligence (SIGINT). These systems are a key component in the operational battlefield of any modern military. These new contracts are further evidence of the continuing trust and confidence of ELTA's customers in our advanced and continuously improving solutions which we have been providing for over 40 years."

The ELK-7071 is an Integrated Communication Intelligence (COMINT) system, designed to cope with the challenges in communications network environments and perform long-range, high endurance COMINT missions. The systems tasks are to scan, locate, analyze, and monitor ground, airborne and naval communications transmissions characterized by short duration and advanced signal forms.

ELL-8385 is an Integrated Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) system, designed to operate in modern dense radar environments, in order to disseminate intelligence report, generate real-time Electronic Order of Battle (EOB), and provide tactical and strategic intelligence that can be seamlessly integrated into a national intelligence database.
