Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) unit Elta's ELM-2022A maritime patrol radar will be installed in 16 aircraft to be supplied to Canada's search and rescue service.
IAI has announced that it was recently awarded a new contract by Airbus Defense & Space to supply 16 ELM-2022A maritime patrol radars.
The government of Canada is purchasing 16 C295 MSA aircraft from Airbus Defense equipped with advanced sensor systems to support Canada’s search and rescue (SAR) operations.
The surveillance sensor to be installed on board the C295 MSA is the ELM-2022 radar system developed by IAI unit Elta Systems Ltd.
The ELM-2022 is multi-mode radar for detection, localization, classification, and tracking of targets over water and land in all weather conditions, day and night. It will assist in all aspects of the Canadian SAR missions.
