Elbit Systems has been awarded contracts for delivery of intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) trainer and armoured driving trainers (ADTs) to the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD).

Under the terms of the contracts, Elbit will supply two ISTAR and unspecified units of ADTs to support the IMOD’s border surveillance and observation and combat vehicle training programmes.

Elbit Systems aerospace division training and simulation vice president Alon Afik said: "These orders for armoured driving and ISTAR trainers position Elbit Systems as a front runner in providing multi-faceted training technologies, such as border protection simulation, sensor simulation and C4I training."

ISTAR is a combat support and field intelligence trainer primarily developed to allow real-time border control and protection training for forward observers (FOs) and sensor operators in all types of terrain.

The trainer enables FOs to efficiently practice joint strike and reconnaissance missions by replicating actual border situations that are having interoperability with command, control, communications, computers and information (C4I) and other communication systems.

“These orders for armoured driving and ISTAR trainers position Elbit Systems as a front-runner in providing multi-faceted training technologies."

Specific mission scenarios simulated by the trainer using a wide variety of day and night sensors include fire planning, ranging and field operations, as well as target detection, recognition, identification, acquisition and engagement in diverse environmental conditions.

Mounted on a six degree of freedom (DOF) moving platform, the ADT is a cost-effective advanced trainer, designed to provide highly realistic combat vehicle driving training to the operators in a broad spectrum of combat and non-combat scenarios.

Equipped with a network-based and user-friendly interface, the modular system is also capable of generating vital practice situations, such as driving under enemy fire or on dangerous slopes, to enable driver training in diverse weather and harsh field conditions.

ADTs will be delivered to IMOD during the first quarter of 2013, while the delivery schedule for ISTAR trainers has not been disclosed by the company.
