Elbit Systems launches the Aircrew Mobile Simulation and Training Field (AMSTF), an Electronic Warfare (EW) system enabling effective and efficient EW Training and Simulation (T&S) for pilots against realistic EW threats.
Edgar Maimon, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT – Elisra, commented: “As EW readiness becomes paramount to mission success and survivability, Air forces increasingly seek efficient EW training capabilities beyond the synthetic. Integrating our operational experience in the area of EW with the company’s unique T&S capabilities enables us to put forward a solution that enables Air Forces to improve readiness while reducing costs.”
Housed in a standard mobile container, the AMSTF system incorporates a range of transmitters, sensors, communications, command and control as well as analytical systems to enable full spectrum coverage including Radio Frequency, Infra-Red and Electro-optics providing aircrews with the opportunity to conduct airborne training in a real life, multi-threat EW arena. The system records the entire session for debriefing and analysis. Positioning several AMSTF units within the training area enables to conduct squadron and fleet training. Designed as an open architecture system the new AMSTF trainer enables programmable and configurable operation for maximum user independence.
