Apr 5, 2011

ELTA Systems Ltd., an Israel Aerospace Industries' group and subsidiary (IAI/ELTA) and TAC Motors will unveil the Stark IRV (Inteligência, Reconhecimento e Vigilância) a new Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) vehicle, at the Latin American Aerospace and Defense Conference and Exhibition- LAAD 2011, which takes place from April 12 to April 15 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

IAI/ELTA and TAC Motors are jointly manufacturing a day and night intelligence and surveillance system installed on a 4x4 off-road light tactical vehicle that can perform law enforcement missions in rough terrain and under all weather conditions. The Stark IRV is designed to support activities against drug and weapon smuggling, illegal border crossing and more.

The Stark IRV sensor suite includes an advanced ground surveillance radar, a powerful day and night electro-optical system and a line-of-sight (LOS) or satellite communication (SATCOM) system. Operated by the vehicle's crew, the ISR system detects, classifies, identifies and tracks targets in the area of interest under all weather conditions. Real-time reports are communicated directly to law enforcement forces deployed in the area.

Nissim Hadas, IAI Corporate VP and ELTA's President said: "Our customers will benefit from IAI / ELTA and TAC Motors know-how and capabilities as world-leaders in ISR and vehicle technologies. The design of the Stark IRV relies on the extensive experience of both companies and our understanding of users' special needs while operating ISR vehicles in rough terrains."
