In an interview following AUS&R 2015, Eli Dotan, Senior Director,Programs at Elbit Systems, ISTAR division, told about the company’s newly developed payloads and the increasing importance of sensors in the Unmanned Aerial Systems, which are the thing that is being developed dramatically.
The platforms themselves, of course, need to be good and Elbit has been developing its unmanned platform for many years, resulting in platforms that are capable of fully handling their designated missions.
“We have to always think about the full picture,” says Dotan. “The platform, the sensors, the user on the ground and how it all comes together.” This full picture is exactly what the ISTAR division is trying to achieve.
