Elbit sues government over cancelled contract

When two countries with very close defence relations find themselves at odds, strange things can happen. The damage to relations between Turkey and Israel was a direct result of Israel’s decision to stop any attempt to break the blockade of Gaza. In 2010 Israeli navy commandoes boarded a ship sailing from Turkey and used firearms […]

The threat, the solution, the market

The threat evolves and so does the system that is designed to foil it.   It is obvious that not many airliners will be equipped in the foreseeable future with countermeasures against shoulder-launched missiles.   The state of the international aviation industry does not provide the atmosphere in which you can expect airlines to stay […]

Turning night into day – technology takes a quantum leap

The most common use of unmanned air systems (UAS) is observation. To look far, day and night, and see the details that are needed to “incriminate” a target so that a weapons system can be directed towards it.   The Israeli payload manufacturers are not allowed to boast about all their achievements, but from time […]

Military intelligence-gathering’s “sixth sense”

Sensors. Very advanced sensors. This is the keyword in the current hottest game. Sensors are, in most cases, the difference between a successful attack on an enemy target and a complete failure.As the enemy hides targets or camouflages them, the sensors must get smarter. In recent days, the Electro-optics (Elop) division of Israel’s Elbit Systems, […]

Enhanced market for enhanced visibility system

This is a very good example of using military technology for civil applications. It proves that such adaptations can meet a big market and, in this particular one, it is going to be even bigger. Elbit Systems of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems from Israel, recently delivered its 1,000th Enhanced Vision System […]

Revealing the fine detail on Jupiter

Israel needs more intelligence satellites, and some are in the design and production process. Unlike in the past, some of the new ones will be in the mini and micro classes. The demand for these visual data collectors orbiting Earth will be greater than ever before. Intelligence about hostile and dangerous countries, such as Iran, […]

A high-flying ‘Peeping Tom’

When neighbours become angry, frustrated, impatient or even violent, you tend to look over the fence to be ready for any possible outburst. This is exactly what happens now in the Middle East, and that forces Israel to have the capability to see what is going on in its neighbours’ yards, and sometimes in their […]
