Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) introduces the ELI-3312 sensor suite, based on electro-optical Hostile Fire Location (HFL) and radar sensors. The system is designed for Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) rapid target acquisition and situational awareness. Designed by ELTA IAI’s subsidiary the ELI-3312’s unique combination of RCWS sensors integrating HFL and a Doppler radar, allows for the automatic detection of hostile fire from light weapons, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and enables rapid retaliation by precise counter fire. The lightweight and compact sensor suite permits fast and simple integration to any type of vehicle or weapon type.

Asymmetric warfare is challenging modern mechanised military forces to supply actionable battlefield intelligence and retaliate rapidly against incoming threats (given their growing capabilities and attack angles). The first layer of defense is to use long-range sensors on vehicles to detect threats before those threats can bring their weapons to bear upon the vehicle. Then, by using long-range weapons, the vehicle’s crew can engage and destroy the threat – by using the combined capabilities of long-range electro-optical and radar sensors on the ground vehicle, thus rapidly closing the sensor-to-shooter cycle.

“The main lesson we have learned from recent asymmetric ground battles is that survivability of the armoured vehicle team depends on their ability to rapidly and efficiently detect and retaliate against incoming threats”, Mr. Nissim Hadas, IAI Executive VP & ELTA President explained: “This premise, long ingrained in aerial and naval warfare, is now permeating to the ground-based warfare, and will be a decisive factor in future conventional or asymmetrical combat.”
