The United States purchased weapons in Israel to fight terrorists UAV

31
The United States Air Force signed a contract with ELTA North ELTA North (American branch of Israeli Aerospace Industries, IAI) to supply equipment to combat small drones used by the IG group (banned in the Russian Federation) in Iraq and Syria, reports Defence.ru with reference to the Pentagon site.

Downed UAV terrorists in Iraq

What is a purchased system is not specified. The message only states that the "21 unit of portable air defense kits" should be delivered by 28 in July of the current year.

“The equipment has acquired the Lifecycle Management Center of the US Air Force Base in Hanscom, Massachusetts. This division deals with electronic and communication systems. That is, it’s rather a certain system of electronic suppression, and not firing rockets ”, - stated in the material.

Not so long ago, IAI advertised at several major exhibitions a Drone Guard system capable of detecting, tracking and jamming small drones. Last year, the company announced the sale of a batch of Drone Guard "to several customers to protect personnel", but did not disclose data from buyers. Perhaps one of the customers of the system became the United States Air Force.



It is also known that the Pentagon considers the purchase from ELTA to be very important - the contract was concluded on a non-competitive basis. The American command called the deal an “urgent operational need.”

Earlier, a representative of the coalition forces in Iraq reported that the terrorists in Mosul mainly use “consumer drones to reconnoitre and dump explosive devices on Iraqi military and civilians”.

    Why didn’t they buy from Belarusians? Are 8 kg batteries heavy?

        Electronic warfare is expensive but effective
        Modern electronic warfare systems (EW) are not “cheap” and “affordable” for everyone to enjoy, but their use against drones can be very effective. The objective of the EW complex is to simultaneously suppress the radio channel through which the operator controls the UAV and the GPS / GLONASS satellite navigation signal (some drones automatically return to the base when the operator signal is lost).
        To suppress, it is necessary to set the frequencies at which the signal is transmitted from the control station. Radio intelligence tools such as the Russian Avtobaza-M can help. The same system can be used to detect UAVs, and at large distances, catching radio waves.
        There is a version that the American drone RQ-2011 Sentinel, made using the Stealth technology, that fell in Iran in 170, was detected by the Avtobaza system and later suppressed by an unknown electronic warfare system. Armenia and Azerbaijan also announced the use of electronic warfare systems - several cases of the “capture” of enemy drones have already been known.

          Did I understand correctly? Israel, which could not bring down our UAVs, neither air defense, nor F-18, successfully sells weapons to combat UAVs to other countries? Ah, well done!

          "Automobile base" for shock (heavy) should be used, but what about the little things?
          As for the interception of control, this is not a simple matter, since communication goes through a secure channel.

      UAV cycle in nature wassat
      US-made UAVs in the Israel Defense Forces were used in the Doomsday War in 1973. And the beginning was laid in 1970, when Israel secretly purchased 12 primitive Firebees drones in the USA.
      After the Doomsday War in Israel, the first drone reconnaissance aircraft with a television camera, the Mastiff, was designed and built in 1974. The initial stage of the development of drones is associated with the names of two Israeli aircraft engineers - Yehuda Mazi and Alvin Ellis. The development attracted the attention of Tadiran Ltd, a company engaged in the production of various equipment as part of the Israeli military-industrial complex. Soon the project was given to the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) corporation, whose designers created the Scout UAV by 1978.

        UAVs were a staggering success in the war with Syria in 1982.
        Massive missile defense of Syrians in Lebanon was destroyed
        per hour without losses (not counting the losses of those first wooden UAVs).
        From that moment, Israel took up the development of UAVs seriously.

          Well, if this year Israel has even more softened the export of UAVs, can it work more tightly and dream ???

      It is clear that the Israelis will not sell to us, so we need to conduct our work in this direction, not to hit them from the anti-aircraft gun, air defense missiles are expensive, or even look at the Donbass, too, they will drop bombs on the city, where they still do not reach.

        "In 2001-2013, Israel controlled 41% of the global UAV market." Thus, Israel became the largest exporter of drones in the world.
        Israeli firms sell drones in 49 countries. 80% of UAVs made in Israel are exported!

    It’s interesting how, from the beginning, the USA and Israel produce and equip terrorists around the world and then they invent weapons to fight them, that is, the creation and then the support of various terrorist organizations is one of the ways to keep afloat and develop the military-industrial complex of Washington and Tel Aviv and increase their military budget smile

    As far as I understand, the conversation is about the IAI Drone Guard system.
    Drone Guard is able to detect a small UAV from a distance (3 km)
    SOURCE: FLIGHTGLOBAL.COM BY: ARJE EGOZI TEL AVIV
    Israel Aerospace Industries
    After detection by radar, the threat is identified using an optical sensor and the violation unit is activated. UAVs are then held on a fixed area until its fuel or batteries run out, or it is sent back to the starting point.
    To solve this emerging problem, ELTA has developed a special system that integrates into a single unit dedicated to electronic jamming systems, 3D radar systems and electro-optical (EO) sensors for detection and identification, as well as for flight interruption.

      Yes. The IAI Concern Aviation Industry has signed a contract with the US Army to supply the Drone Guard mini-UAV detection system.
      We are talking about a contract worth $ 15.5 million. In total, the US Army ordered 21 sets, which will be produced in Israel by ELTA.
      The Drone Guard system was first demonstrated in 2015 and is capable of detecting mini UAVs at a distance of 10 to 20 km, depending on the installed radar, to detect subtle, low-flying UAVs at low speed, the ELTA company adapted the ELM-2026D radars (10 km) , ELM-2026B (15km) and ELM-2026BF (20km) To counter UAVs, ELTA has developed advanced jamming systems that can be used with detection and identification sensors or as continuous systems. The developed counteraction system breaks in the UAV control system and can force it to either return to the starting point (the "return home" function) or disconnect and make an emergency landing. Drone Guard passed successful tests that included various scenarios for the use of various models of drones or the simultaneous interception of many targets.

      Well, yes, in the relations between the military-industrial complex of Israel and the United States (which are sometimes difficult to distinguish even legally), this is an axiom, which, ceteris paribus, the research and development in Israel is at least two times cheaper than in the USA (maybe everything is close, less coordination and " mouths "requiring a share, and" mouths "are much more modest, by American standards?)

        Yes, not near, but cheaper overhead costs for developers, workers, service staff and others, etc., etc. Four times cheaper compared to the United States. Despite the fact that 1 bucks costs about four shekels. And a liter of gasoline costs in the USA - Oh, 6 dollars, and in Israel - almost one and a half green - almost six shekels, and sometimes even higher. The average salary in the United States, respectively: the minimum wage is $ 5000 per month, and the Israelis have approximately 4000 shekels, that is, $ 1000. That's the whole clue. This is not an axiom, it is a calculation. You tell Trump, let him use.

          Overhead, right. Minimal salary in Israel from this year 5000 NIS. at the rate today 3.679 = 1360 dollars. Really with a little processing, as always, or on Friday to noon with coefficient. 1 25, plus travel from the employer, 1600-1650 dollars to the bank account comes out at least. And there are lovers of night shifts, as a relative in their confectionery factory, min. 7500-8000 shekels. But the point is not in the minimum, (in the military-industrial complex completely different money), but in the aggregate. You correctly noted, have a nice day!
