ELTA Systems and Hensoldt Optronics announce collaboration on an Integrated Communication and Surveillance (ICS) system for submarines.
Targeted for Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, the ICS is a fully integrated system combining HENSOLDT’s Optical Surveillance Optronics Mast OMS150 with ELTA’s SIGINT and SATCOM payloads.
The ICS performs optical surveillance, radar warning and detection and monitoring of GPS, voice and other communicating transmissions between ships, land or airborne platforms. The data gathered in real time can provide the submarines crew vital information regarding the enemy’s exact location and current situation. It is equipped with a SATCOM and Laser system for secure communications.
The ICS will be displayed virtually at Euronaval 2020 exhibition at both Hensoldt and IAI booths.
Director Sales Hensoldt Optronics Maritime, Harald Hansen states, “Providing a single integrated mast solution will truly satisfy our customers who are searching to enhance their submarines’ capabilities while being sensitive to the limited amount of space available and retaining a high degree of stealthiness.”
