Home > Major Activities – Military Aircraft and Helicopter System
We supply a comprehensive portfolio of advanced airborne systems and products to leading military aircraft manufacturers and end users designed to enhance operational capabilities and extend aircraft life cycles.
Our airborne systems provide a range of solutions from a single sensor to an entire cockpit avionics suite. We integrate our systems on fixed and rotary-wing, eastern and western, new and mature aircraft. Under our aircraft and helicopter upgrade programs, we integrate advanced electronic, communication, navigation, electro-optic and EW systems. We support life cycle extension of our customers’ fleets and supply logistic support services for airborne platforms, including repair and maintenance centers, training and spare parts.
Our portfolio of military fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter systems and products includes a broad range of avionic systems, such as integrated flight deck systems, mission management computers, displays, digital maps and digital recorders. Our portfolio also includes airborne electro-optic systems such as head-up displays, airborne intelligence gathering systems such as SkEye WAPS™ (wide area persistent video surveillance), precision guidance systems and aircraft structural components. It also includes a range of aircraft tactical, virtual, appended and embedded trainers and simulators.
Our programs for military fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters encompass full scale aircraft upgrades, system upgrades, system and product supply, training, simulators and logistic support. The customers and end users for our military fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters programs include a wide range of air forces and other governmental defense and homeland security forces worldwide, as well as major fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter manufacturers. Examples of recent program awards in this area include contracts for the supply of defense electronic systems for airborne applications for a European country, the upgrade of C-1A aircraft for the Brazilian Navy, an F-5 upgrade program for an Asian customer, the purchase of new firefighting aircraft and operation of the firefighting squadron for the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD), and long-term maintenance of the avionics systems for the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) F-16 fleet. Examples of other recent activities in this area include delivery to Lockheed Martin of the Center Pedestal Display and Common Data Entry Electronics Unit for the most recent F-16 avionics upgrade as well as inauguration of the Flight Training Center for the IAF’s M346 advanced trainer aircraft.
