Full Line-Up of Elbit Systems? Products On Show at FIDAE 2010
Elbit Systems will present a vast array of advanced next-generation systems and solutions at the upcoming FIDAE exhibition, set to take place at Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, Santiago-de-Chile 23-28 March, 2010.

The Company’s exhibition stand (Hall D, stand 1L) will be the venue for a full spectrum of advanced systems demonstrating leadership in all of its business areas, from tactical radio and communication systems to advanced Avionics and electro-optic systems as well as a variety of the Company's UAS displayed in real-size at the outdoor presentation area facing the Company stand. FIDAE will be an excellent opportunity for visitors to view displays and presentations of Elbit Systems’ core technologies and cutting-edge solutions.

The following systems will be highlighted at the show:

Land and C4I Systems:

Elbit Systems’ C4I software solutions for the infantry (C4I SW), together with the decades of communications experience of Tadiran Communications', offer extensive, battle-proven expertise for the most intense combat scenarios. It supports planning, situational awareness, target handling, devices connectivity as well as video and map displays. It also provides command and control functionalities for all levels of commands of light infantry forces along with interface to armored units, artillery and close air support. Interfacing and operating with all existing communication equipment, Elbit Systems equips infantry soldiers with highly-advanced, miniaturized high-tech tools mounted on backs or helmets for enhanced situational awareness, quicker response and ultimately increased efficiency in mission performance.

Dominator® Integrated Infantry Combat System (IICS) - Dominator empowers infantry units with full situational awareness, networking them into integrated information systems. Land warriors can send and receive information in real time, view up-to-the-minute situation pictures (hostile and own forces) on personal displays as well as live video from either external or on body sensors and transmit images and positions back to command units.

The following are part of the Dominator IICS gear:

* PDU – Personal Digital Unit- a rugged, tactical powerful computer especially designed for the individual infantry warrior. The compact, energy-efficient, computer empowers the soldier with data processing and storage capabilities, includes an integrated GPS and the Integrated Infantry Combat System C2 application, and the TIGER system.

* TIGER (Tactical Intranet Geographic Dissemination in Real-time) enhances real-time decision making at all force levels by unifying all channels, integrating them into one dynamic tactical intranet and creating interest-based, geographic data dissemination.

* Eyepiece - a high quality display for the C4I picture and live video and built-in LOS (Line Of Sight) sensors, the eyepiece may be mounted on a helmet, on the warrior's vest or as part of the weapon-mounted Fire Control System.

* Hand-held Display - a compact portable display, sunlight readable, 5.6in or 8in touch panel screen and operation function keys. This display is designed to display the C2 application and streaming video.

* MaXess - Elbit Systems' Advanced broadband Military Wireless LAN supporting live video transmission and reception, based on advanced ad-hoc networking protocols, enabling the land warrior to efficiently close the sensor to shooter loop.

Dominator interfaces with any communications device. Optimal operation is assured with the following Elbit Systems Land and C4I–Tadiran radios on display at Elbit Systems' stand:

* Tadiran PNR-500 Personal Net Radio (410-450 MHz) is a fully-functioning UHF communicator enabling 3-way conferencing on a single channel. Rugged and software-based, the PNR-500 supports air, sea and ground communications, with its Always Available feature facilitating the delivery of mission-critical messages. The radio can also be used as the wireless unit in Tadiran's vehicular intercom system.

* Tadiran CNR-9000 HDR - This tactical radio system provides high speed 115 kbps data communications capabilities on 25 kHz spaced tactical VHF/FM channels. At lower data rates, the Tadiran CNR-9000 HDR achieves up to twice the range compared to the legacy communication radios. These capabilities enable delivery of multimedia functionality to the battlefield.

* Tadiran THF-8000 - Adaptable to every arena, the Tadiran THF-8000 comprises a manpack configuration (PRC), vehicular configuration (VRC) and high power systems. The radios are feature-packed with advanced capabilities such as a high data communication rate of up to 19,200 bps with STANAG 5066 as the application controller. The PRC manpack radio set offers a unique ability of data transfer rate, allowing for video transfer to the soldier in the field via the HF channel. It also incorporates advanced miniaturization technologies resulting in significant weight and size reduction.

* VIC-500 Digital Intercom for Tanks and other military vehicles is a digital wireless intercom system that links the on-board crew members among themselves as well as with the external world. With this system, each crew member can dismount the vehicle and move on foot unencumbered to distances of up to 800 meters from the vehicle, while remaining in touch with all of the other mounted or dismounted crew members as well as with other forces and radio stations. The VIC-500’s unique full-duplex conference communicating capability allows two crew members to speak simultaneously, while an unlimited number of personnel listen in, improving coordination and reducing operational errors.

* Tadiran PRC-710 MB is an advanced, secured multi-band (30-512 MHz), frequency-hopping hand-held radio, covering VHF and UHF tactical bands, and facilitates voice and data communications between air, ground and naval forces. Compact and lightweight, the PRC-710 enables communications from the palm of the hand and integrates into C4I systems.

Training & Simulation:

* HLS2 - Homeland Security Simulation - The HLS2 system enables training, operational mission rehearsal and security planning, as well as doctrine and procedural evaluation and development for first responders, emergency agencies such as police, rescue & fire fighters, medical care, NBCR teams, local & state authorities and control room commanders in complex urban environments, handling diverse catastrophic situations.

* Joint Forces Tactical Training Systems - Our LVC (Live, Virtual & Constructive) training system, based on the BEST infrastructure, offers live, virtual training for all levels of air, ground and naval forces. It launches a new era in advanced operational training by connecting all levels of operational forces, both in simulators and on-board actual platforms, and enabling them to share the same arena.
