Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)’s ELTA Systems has unveiled its new Passive Coherent Location (PCL) System that can covertly detect and track aerial targets.

The system enables the creation of an air situation picture that tracks non-emitting targets using non-cooperative transmitters. It detects and tracks aerial threats based on target reflection from non-cooperative transmissions from FM or Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) towers. The reflections are received by one or a network of antennas, providing 3D real-time omnidirectional coverage for tracking of multiple targets in congested airborne traffic, the company said in a statement last week.

The PCL system is simple to deploy and can be located on remote borders, as well as in urban areas. Installation can include one sensor or a cluster of sensors for redundancy and improved coverage of specific problematic areas. The sites are connected to the central PCL command and control processing unit via a dedicated data link.

The new system is already deployable and provides real-time aerial mapping, of non-emitting threats.
