Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is offering its new, advanced mobile C4 system for air operations – MASHOV to a number of armed forces.
According to the Israeli company MASHOV is a comprehensive combat C4 mobile solution for offensive and defensive air-operations. This C4 center integrates versatile operational capabilities in a compact and mobile shelter.
The system supports the entire operational cycle – from mission planning and rehearsal, through real-time command and control, target allocation, communication and mission debriefing. The system generates a unified combat and air situation picture, by integrating sensors and communication systems.
Real-time mission command and control is effectively executed utilizing the comprehensive and unified situation picture along with communications and datalink systems.
MASHOV provides an advanced air-defense capability, by integrating airborne fighters with ground-based air-artillery, creating a unified awareness picture and automatic target detection, analysis and allocation. The system’s wide band datalink network provides real-time communication with airborne platforms while integrating its data into the unified situation picture.
MASHOV is a self-contained mobile ground control unit as well as a front-line C4 cell, functioning in either a stand-alone or networked mode of operation. MASHOV joins IAI’s extensive and proven family of situational picture and command and control systems in the air, land, space and sea arenas, enhancing the customers’ operational capabilities with entirely interoperable solutions.
