Development at The Maritime C4ISR Market


This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew)

The growing demand from coastal agencies and navies from the point of view of the missions’ volume and variety requires the development of upgraded command and control technologies as well as network-based collaboration solutions that would supply the forces with better real-time situational awareness.

Based on advanced combat-proven C4ISR and sensor technologies, Elbit Systems continues to expand its C4ISR maritime activity with a system enabling full situational awareness and networked real-time force cooperation.

Elbit Systems was recently awarded an approximately $11 million contract for the supply of an integrated maritime C4ISR system to an Asia-Pacific navy.

The contract, to be performed over a two-year period, will include interconnected coastal sensor towers, naval command centers and maritime C4I capabilities, as well as ongoing maintenance. The project will support commanders and other users (headquarters, command centers, coastal observation posts and vessels) throughout routine and special operations and will also be used for training and simulation.

According to the company’s announcement, its system will provide the customer with a complete situational awareness and networked real-time solution, integrating radar, electro-optic systems, radio and communications systems.

The move reflects the growing demand from coastal agencies and navies that are required to secure ports, dams, harbors and waterways while encountering terrorism, illegal immigration, enemy operations and a high volume of vessels and passengers traveling at sea.
