Elbit Systems launches DAiR, an innovative simultaneous multi-mission tactical radar.

The system makes target prioritization redundant, enabling a step-change in the effectiveness and efficiency of tactical terrain dominance, protection against Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and border security.

The new radar will be presented during the Eurosatory 2022. The DAiR is an X-band software-defined radar system that incorporates hundreds of digital receivers, sophisticated algorithms, and computing cores with Artificial Intelligence capabilities. The system can simultaneously detect and track thousands of objects of various sizes and velocities, with no need for target prioritization. These unique radar capabilities enable a tactical force to use a single radar system for handling a vast number of targets of various types and ranges, including humans, small quadcopters, helicopters, UAS, vessels, and artillery. Small drones are detected from up to 12km and humans from up to 15km. The DAiR radar system is compatible with the All-purpose Structured EUROCONTROL Surveillance Information Exchange protocols (ASTERIX), enabling seamless information sharing with C4I systems.

Oren Sabag, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR & EW, said: “As warfare becomes increasingly multi-domain, the target prioritizing capability, central to legacy radars, becomes a liability. Forces are compelled to apply multiple radars to keep up with the evolving threat – holding a common operational picture becomes harder, and costs increase. The DAiR radar system addresses these challenges and does not rely on target prioritization, thereby aligning the radar capability with the imperatives of multi-domain warfare.” To stay up-to-date with Elbit System’s latest videos and news, click the subscribe button and tap the bell to ensure you receive notifications from us.
