Elbit Systems Ltd. announced today the acquisition of BAE Systems Rokar International Ltd. (“Rokar”) from BAE Systems, Inc., the U.S. headquartered subsidiary of BAE Systems plc for approximately $31 million net of any cash in Rokar. Located in Jerusalem, Israel, Rokar specializes in the development, manufacture, integration, and support of high-end GPS receivers and guidance systems for advanced defense applications.
Within this, the company stands behind the development and production of its Advanced Countermeasures Dispensing System (ACDS), a computer controlled, threat-adaptive countermeasure system intended to protect aircraft from both air and ground threats, through the use of decoy payloads. This system is capable of controlling and distributing multiple Flare, RF and additional types of expendable payloads, in order to provide multi-spectral response when needed, and in accordance to programs that adapt to both parameters of the engagement and specific threats.
The SNIR (Satellite Navigation Immune Receiver) product family is designed to meet stringent requirements for overcoming emerging GPS jammer threats. SNIR integrates advanced anti-jam technologies, according to user needs, to suppress various interferences in multiple-jammer environments. These systems are installed on air, land, and naval platforms and used for a wide range of munitions. They can be integrated as anti-jamming receivers or added to legacy GPS receivers. GPS Navigation and Guidance Products:
- GPS Anti-Jamming Satellite Navigation Immune Receivers: SNIR
- Navigation and Guidance Systems for Artillery Projectiles: GH GPS
- GPS and Guidance Systems for Artillery Rockets: Nav-Comp
- GPS for High Dynamics Systems: NAVPOD
- GPS for Airborne, Ground and Sea Platforms: NT4RLG
Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, Elbit Systems President & CEO, commented: “There is increasing demand for our networked precision fire solutions. Rokar’s technologies are integrated in our solutions and the acquisition will further enhance our capabilities in this growing area of activity.”
