|Israeli Defence Industry Rafael at AUVSI 2011 with top-quality UAV products and technology.|
AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America is the premier forum for reviewing, assessing and discussing the current state of the unmanned systems market. At AUVSI 2011, the Israeli Defence Company Rafael presents a top-quality product suite to meet today's challenges of UAV intelligence gathering and processing.
For more than 60 years, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. has been designing, developing, and manufacturing a wide range of leading-edge defense systems for land, air, naval, and space applications.
Rafael has extensive experience in developing and manufacturing some of the most advanced missiles in the world. Its wide range of missiles for air, land and sea applications includes: anti-armor/multi-purpose missiles for short to extended ranges, active-radar and full-sphere IR air-to-air missiles with short-to-beyond visual range, as well as missile targets for TBMs. Its array of air-to-surface missiles includes stand-off missiles and precision-guided munitions kits for use against high-value ground targets.
Rafael also develops, adapts and manufactures its advanced missiles for naval and surface-launched air defense systems. In April 2011, Rafael's Iron Dome, a short-range missile defense system achieved its first operational successes after intercepting 8 projectile rockets fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel. Currently, Rafael is developing David's Sling, a medium range missile defense system, due to achieve completion in 2012.
Using its vast experience in the development of C4I and Command & Control solutions, Rafael presents a top-quality product suite to meet today's challenges of UAV intelligence gathering and processing. Rafael's product suite offers a complete intelligence solution, with cutting edge technologies for UAV Mission Enhancement.
The ImiLite is a cost effective multi-source, multi-task imagery intelligence system that receives, exploits and processes multiple imagery and data in a unified manner, disseminating relevant intelligence reports, products and material over the network to authorized end users and clients.
Such capabilities include Rafael's Reccelite, a self-contained, self-cooled multi-sensor tactical reconnaissance system, consisting of an airborne pod, based on the Litening targeting and navigation pod, and a ground exploitation station. Reccelite is one of Rafael's flagship solutions and has had substantial contribution to the performance of different forces around the world, including NATO combat and peacekeeping missions.
Rafael's systems contain advanced payloads and sensors, wide-band communication systems, ground stations (C4ISR), and advanced automated image-processing. Integration of these products in a UAV system can be implemented at the design phase or as a system upgrade.
Mr. Haim Jacobovitz, VP and General Manager of Rafael's NCW Sector said: "Today's complex battlefield and intelligence-gathering needs require solutions that can overcome extreme challenges and can provide quick, high-quality data for fast target engagement and reliable information. Rafael's vast experience has allowed us to develop our battle-proven integrable systems, allowing forces to receive data from multiple sources, analyze it and carry out simultaneous tasks."
At AUVSI 2011, Rafael will also unveil the ImiLite-M, a standalone system providing a set of tools for UAV mission enhancement. The ImiLite M supports the UAV unit commander or a remote payload operator in carrying out the assigned mission. With its unique Map and Video Display, the ImiLite M receives video from an analog or a digital source and displays it on the screen along with the payload’s ground footprint. The ImiLite-M performs Video Motion Detection, crucial for long ISR missions, coupled with visual and voice alerts, whenever a movement is detected in the image.
