Electronic warfare suites to be integrated into Israeli navy Sa'ar 6-class corvettes

HAIFA, Israel. Officials at the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD) tapped Elbit Systems Ltd. to supply electronic warfare (EW) suites for the Israeli navy Sa'ar 6-class corvettes that will be tasked with the protection of Israel's Economic Exclusion Zone. The $85 million contract will be performed over a 10-year period.

The EW systems include digital receivers, technologies, and analysis tools that are all of an open system architecture enabling effective operational capabilities while maintaining flexibility to cope with both current and future threats.

The latest configurations of those technologies were developed in close cooperation with the IMOD's Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure and with the Israeli Navy, and have been recently declared operational after successfully completing intensive sea trials.
