The new aerial warning plane of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) - the "Eytam", will be presented for the first time abroad at the Farnborough Air Show 2008, which will be held in England between July 2008 and 14, 20.

The "Eitam" aircraft, known in the professional jargon as CAEW (Conformal Airborne Early Warning), is used as an airborne aerial warning system on a G550 executive aircraft platform manufactured by the American Gulfstream company. The mission systems, which are installed on the plane, were developed by Elta Systems, a division and subsidiary of the Aerospace Industry (TAA) and are the third generation of systems of this type.

The first CAEW aircraft was delivered by the Aerospace Industry to the Israeli Air Force in February 2007, and is used for a variety of missions: early warning, intelligence gathering and command and control of air battles. The second early warning aircraft was delivered in May 2008, after the installation of dedicated mission systems.

The aerial warning plane is capable of flying long distances at high altitude. The aircraft carries an active electronic radar array (AESA - Active Electronically Steered Array technology) that transmits on two frequencies, a companion-predator identification system (allows for the distinction between friendly and enemy aircraft), electronic intelligence systems (ESM - Electronic Support Measures), and a defense system self The CAEW aircraft also carries a comprehensive communications suit, adapted to operations in a networked environment (NCO - Network Centric Operations), and guarantees the ability to operate jointly with friendly forces in any scene of occurrence.

Yitzhak Nissan, CEO of IAI, said: "Mission aircraft programs are part of the main and important business lines of IAI. We have technological and operational achievements that place the aerospace industry as a unique leader among international manufacturers."

Nissim Hadas, CEO of Elta Systems, said: "Elta was the first to develop and technologically implement an active electronic radar array (AESA) in the aerial early warning aircraft. These planes are operated regularly. The feedback received from the Israeli Air Force is that the planes demonstrate excellent performance, and we receive many compliments on that."

Avishai Yitzhakian, deputy director of the mission aircraft factory at Alta Systems, said that: "Alta's aerial warning aircraft is one of the most advanced of its kind. This is a significant technological and operational breakthrough, which created a change in the warning aircraft market in the world. Nowadays, the processes of technological miniaturization allow us to give the customer all the capabilities of a large warning plane in a small executive plane that is economical in fuel and in regular operation."

Elta's aerial early warning aircraft is the second phase of the Israeli Air Force's strategic plan to replace its old mission aircraft array with a modern fleet of G550 aircraft with the best cost-benefit ratio. The first phase of the program included the equipping of Elta's Special Electronic Mission Aircraft (SEMA), three of which have entered active service in Israel since 2006. The electronic intelligence aircraft demonstrates excellent performance and provides the decision makers with an electronic battle picture (EOB - Electronic Order of Battle) in real time. The planned third phase is the equipping of an advanced aircraft for air-to-ground missions.

The Aerospace Industry (TAA) is a world leader in the field of aviation and defense in space, in the air, on land and at sea, and the largest industrial exporter in Israel. Elta Systems, a division and subsidiary company of the Israel Defense Forces, designs, develops, manufactures and sells to its customers a variety of systems and products from the field of military electronics. The division operates as a military systems house based on electromagnetic sensors (radar, electronic warfare, communications) and information technologies. The division's products are designed and suitable for all branches of the military (air, sea and land) and especially for intelligence, reconnaissance and observation, early warning and control, protection and defense, target acquisition and fire control.

The aerospace industry's sales in 2007 reached 3.3 billion dollars, compared to 2.8 billion dollars in 2006, an increase of 18 percent. The sales of the Alta Systems division for 2007 amounted to 925 million dollars, compared to 805 million dollars in 2006, an increase of about 14 percent.

  1. to 6 correct. I believe that Israel has the ability
    to gain control (even if limited) in the airspace
    The Iranians (especially, if out of choice, will join
    The Americans for the operation - after all, the Iranians - in their mouths
    At least, they also threaten American bases).

  2. If everything is correct and works, it's a beautiful thing. Such an aircraft may be able to locate
    Launching missiles over Iranian territory - and with a bit of luck also allowing them to be intercepted
    (at the time of launch) using fighter jets and drones.

  3. This week it was also reported that it is suitable for flying passengers
    For example, the Minister of Defense was supposed to be in Greece and return in the evening
    the plane that flew it

  4. Is it possible to talk to every enemy?

    They tried to appease Hitler. It was costly.
    They also tried to appease Arafat. It cost more but less.

  5. More and more weapons of war... I wonder how they calculate optimal cost-benefit prices there?

    Either way, with all the bad things about it, I suppose that introducing technology to the army is a blessed thing that minimizes human errors as much as possible. It's a shame that such a technological tool cannot be made in politics as well - let's say something to remind the politicians that after a war they sit at the table to talk anyway, so maybe it can be done before the war and save money, lives and public horror.

    Greetings friends,
    Ami Bachar
