Enhancing Mission Effectiveness for U.S. Special Operations Forces: Elbit Systems of America Demonstrates Tomorrow's Advanced Technology Capabilities at SOFIC
Wednesday, May 16, 2018

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Providing advanced technology capabilities for America's Special Operations Forces is a priority for Elbit Systems of America, LLC. The company melds an innovative spirit with more than 25 years of experience in the U.S. to deliver ready and proven capabilities to enhance SOF operators' ability to understand, anticipate, influence, respond and adapt to operational environments. Elbit Systems of America will display mature, high technology readiness level solutions at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, May 22-24, 2018. The conference, known as SOFIC, will take place in the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida.

"Special operations forces must be equipped with trusted and capable solutions that allow them to command their operational environments," said Raanan Horowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Elbit Systems of America. "Our company's innovative solutions offer enhanced situational awareness and precision accuracy in a variety of operational environments."

Examples of capabilities to be featured in Elbit Systems of America's booth (#1212) at SOFIC include:

        - Enhanced situational awareness during day, night and in degraded visual
          environments. Through the integration of leading technologies from across the Elbit
          Systems enterprise, the company brings advanced capabilities to the fight. Advanced
          situational awareness and decision support solutions focus on all aspects of sensing,
          processing and displaying to provide rotorcraft, tilt-rotor and fixed-wing aircrews a
          decisive edge. Examples:
             - Building and integrating a suite of sensors that fuse and display information with
             near-zero latency. More robust detection, classification and tracking.
             - Open system architecture to enable the seamless integration of computer-generated
             entities that leads to more effective mission training and rehearsal.
             - A degraded visual environment solution that uses intuitive 3-D grid symbology.
             - Wide field of view helmet displays for optimized human-machine interfaces tied
             directly to emerging weapon solutions.
             - Large area touch displays that provide the crew with quick access to critical
        - Cost-effective stand-off capabilities to engage moving or static targets in
          various conditions and longer ranges in complex terrains. The company's loitering
          munitions, advanced targeting systems, and laser and multi-mode seekers for precision
          guided munitions deliver increased accuracy and flexibility, while minimizing
          collateral damage.
             - Loitering munitions also provide advanced surveillance and additional strike
             capabilities that reduces time between target identification and impact.
             - Advanced and lightweight targeting systems provide SOF day and night capabilities
             for reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting missions.
             - Highly-accurate laser seeker capability with options for additional modes to
             address GPS-denied and challenging optical tracking environments to ensure an
             accurate and sustained fix to target.
        - Small unmanned aircraft systems that are easily deployed and may be configured
          with a multitude of sensors tailored to the mission.
        - Increased aircraft mission availability and reduced operating cost. The company offers
          contractor logistic support services and cockpit upgrades for military aircraft
          platforms. These include site and depot level maintenance, material management,
          engineering services, aircraft modifications and cockpit upgrades that sustain
          aircraft mission readiness.
        - Embedded synthetic training for real world threat engagement scenarios. Embedded
          training systems integrate with current aircraft displays and cockpit controls to
          network between aircraft and provide collective training. The systems evaluate crew
          survival information for subsequent download and review during post-flight debrief.
