Elt Showcases EW Capabilities for World Navies
Italian firm Elt offers their technological know-how in the EMSO (Electromagnetic Support Operations) domain at IMDEX Asia this year, leveraging their expertise in the Electronic Warfare (EW) domain.
Elt has been providing EW systems for the Italian Navy’s new PPA offshore patrol vessels and LHD amphibious assault ships. These systems address communications and radar threats discovering, detecting and analysing these, while responding to them with advanced countermeasure using state-of-the-art Gallium Nitride modules.
At IMDEX, the spotlight will be on Elt’s new generation of EWS suite designed for distributed EW. Elt’s EW Manager is a computer-aided command and control system integrating all electronic warfare subsystems. Threat information can be fused via the EW Manager and shared with other onboard or offboard users.
The EW Manager also facilitates collaboration with uninhabited platforms. As well as integrating Elt’s own electronic warfare products, the EW Manager can work with third party products from other suppliers.
This efficient collaboration between EW suites installed on different platforms, is extended into the land environment to enhance situational awareness, improve border security and costal surveillance with a protective shield covering all threats from small drones up to aircraft and missiles.
Vessel survivability can be further strengthened, particularly in the realm of current and emerging infrared threats, via Elt’s Naval DIRCM (Directional Infrared Countermeasures) system.
Elt has a long-standing tradition in the naval sector and a strong record of successful domestic and international collaboration on key platforms like the Franco-Italian Horizon and FREMM class ships, the NFH-90 naval helicopter and an array of projects in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. –shp/adj/aaa (Image: Fincatieri)
