The events of September 11, 2001 continue to cast a shadow over many countries. Subsequent warnings and attacks have added to the threat of terrorist attacks, and have led to an increase in demand for Homeland Security solutions to these threats.
In response to the existing and growing worldwide threat of terrorism, IAI's subsidiary ELTA Systems Group is developing advanced solutions, based on ELTA's expertise and the use of proven technologies in the proactive fight against terror.
Aerostat ELTA's systems and technologies solutions against potential threats are offered in the following areas:

EL M-2129 - Medium range movement detection radarToday, ELTA already operates a wide range of different equipment deployed to protect Israel' s borders and installations. Responding to current threats, the company had deployed a defense system along the "seam line" (the separation area between Israel and the Palestinian Authority) to demonstrate concept and hardware efficacy. The system includes a command and control center, integrated observation systems (an EL/M-2129 movement detection and security radar, and a POP - Plug in Optronic Payload optical sensor). Additional options are: surveillance balloon (aerostat), an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Communication Intelligence (COMINT) systems.
These products are designed to work in interactive synergy with active forces at all levels of deployment. They can be adapted to meet each customer's needs, and can easily be integrated with a customer's existing capabilities.
The system is designed to create virtual control areas, which are created by the integration of different sensor systems. At the appropriate stage, the system alerts, activates and manages the timely deployment of interception forces to frustrate any attempt to penetrate the border.
