Feb 7, 2007

Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI) Elta Systems Group received new orders worth $55 million for its EL/M-2032 Multimode Airborne Fire Control Radar (FCR).

The EL/M-2032 FCR modular configuration, software control and flexible avionic interfaces allow for integration of the FCR into upgraded fighter aircraft such as F-16, F-5 Mirage types, F-4 Mig-21 and more.

The EL/M-2032 FCR enhances the air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea capabilities of the aircraft. In air-to-air modes, the radar enables long range target detection and tracking for weapon delivery or automatic target acquisition in close combat engagements. In air-to-ground missions, the radar provides high resolution mapping in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) mode, surface target detection and tracking in addition to Air to Ground Ranging (AGR). For air-to sea missions, the radar provides long range target detection and tracking and target classification capabilities such as range signature and Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR).

The radar is built based on Elta's extensive experience in radar technology backed with real operational feedback from the Israel Air Force combat pilots.

The new orders are clear recognition by customers who appreciate the performance and the cost effectiveness Elta can offer.
