Rafael develops and manufactures advanced defense systems for the Israeli Defense Forces and the defense establishment, as well as for foreign customers around the world.
The company offers its customers and users a diversified array of innovative solutions at the leading edge of global technology, from underwater systems through naval, ground, and air superiority systems to space systems.
As part of its corporate culture of partnerships and cooperation, Rafael has created agreements with over 100 governmental, aviation, space and defense organizations in Israel and around the world. These programs allow Rafael and its partners to capitalize on mutual strengths and leverage existing capabilities.
Rafael’s systems are Discriminate, Precise and Proportionate, and this in turn makes them Economical, Efficient and Effective.
At Aero India we will present a wide range of Aerial and Air Defense Systems and technologies.photo pg20a
For the first time in India, Rafael will unveil C-Dome, a Naval Point Defense System based on the combat-proven Iron Dome.
In addition, Rafael will present for the first time in India SPICE-250, the new generation standoff Precision Guided Munition (PGM) based on Rafael’s unique scene-matching technology used in its already combat proven SPICE-1000 & 2000 guidance kits.
At the air show we present the SPIKE Family which consists of missiles suited for land, air and naval platforms, with multiple ranges and a variety of targets. The missiles in this family have a tandem warhead and sophisticated electro-optic CCD and IIR sensors for day/night all-weather operation. The missiles’ lofted trajectories enable the warhead to strike the target at its most vulnerable location with pinpoint precision. The SPIKE Family members have a low life-cycle cost due to their high reliability, operational and logistic support and production commonality between members.
The LITENING is a combat-proven multi-spectral airborne targeting and navigation pod designed for navigation and target illumination. LITENING significantly enhances day and night attack capabilities. Mounted externally to the aircraft, LITENING contains advanced forward looking infrared (FLIR) and charge coupled device (CCD) sensors. High-resolution images of the target are presented to the aircrew, with wide field of view search capability and precision acquisition and targeting. Unmatched sensor resolution enables aircrew to reliably detect and identify targets day and night, in all weather conditions. LITENING is in operation worldwide.
Another electro-optical system is the RecceLite, a day/night electro-optical tactical reconnaissance pod for real-time imagery collection and data transfer. Self-contained and self-cooled, the multi-sensor system is composed of an airborne payload, a wide digital data link and a ground exploitation station (GES). RecceLite is combat proven and in operation worldwide.
As for conmunication systems, we present BNet, a Broadband MANET IP Software Defined Radio (SDR). BNet is a mobile ad-hoc radio communications network for the transmission of reliable digital information at high data rates among a large number of users.
BNet is an integrated C3 system providing position and jam-resistant high-speed Data and Voice (Analogy and VoIP) used for combat communications in a modern battlefield.
Among its other advanced defense systems, Rafael will display:
* Integrated Air and Missile Defense Systems: (Iron Dome, Spyder SR/MR, Python – 5, Derby, MIC4AD, Spice 2000)
* Electro Optic and Communication Systems: (Reccelite & Recce-U, Toplite EOS)
