Self protection system improves UAV survivability

Electronic warfare specialists release a self protection system for unmanned aerial vehicles at the Paris air show
Self protection system improves UAV survivability

At the Paris Air Show Elbit Systems and Sigint–Elisra will launch a self protection Electronic Warfare (EW) system, well suited for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

Improving the UAS’ survivability, the SPS-65V5 system is based on Elbit Systems and Sigint–Elisra's experience in the development of systems installed onboard other platforms such as fighters, helicopters and utility aircraft, already in operational use by the Israeli Air Force and other customers worldwide.

Edgar Maimon, General Manager of Elisra, commented: "The increased global use of UAS is accompanied by a growing demand for survivability capabilities for these platforms, enabling protection of both the mission and the platform itself, as well as the unique and valuable sensors carried onboard. Maimon added: "The range of sensors included in this new protection system will also contribute to and enhance the UAS’ intelligence gathering capabilities. Like other UAS-related systems developed by Elisra, the new protection system complements other Elbit Systems’ developments, thus providing customers with a suite of generic solutions for survivability and intelligence needs.

The UAS Self Protection system is based on the modular SPS65-V5, allowing for the addition/removal of capabilities based on the operational requirements set by the user and mission restrictions.  The system is adjusted to UAS use in terms of Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and it can be installed onboard a variety of UAS platforms, ranging from tactical to HALE.
