Exelis experts will be present in hall 2, booth 222A, to demonstrate the company’s proven solutions in the areas of electromagnetic spectrum dominance, persistent surveillance and high-performance payload release technology.
“International partners recognize Exelis for our combination of innovation and proven technology,” said Chris Tucker, Exelis Vice President of international business development.
“Our solutions provide cutting-edge situational awareness and protection, enabling mission success for our customers and strengthening joint international capabilities.” He added.
The Exelis solutions showcased at IDEF 2015 will include:
- The ALQ-211 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite (AIDEWS), which provides advanced radar warning and radio frequency countermeasures for F-16s to defeat sophisticated electronic threats. Exelis is currently under contract to supply AIDEWS pods to the Turkish Air Force.
- The CorvusEye™ 1500 wide-area airborne surveillance system, which complements traditional video surveillance systems by providing high-resolution, visible color and infrared motion imagery over a city-sized area.
- The BRU-57 smart twin store carrier, which effectively doubles the payload carriage capability of tactical strike aircraft such as the F-16. The BRU-57 achieves this with minimal impact to the aircraft’s operational flight program and no modification to aircraft hardware.
- The Lightweight Twin Store Carrier (LTSC), which employs clean, lightweight pneumatic power to help unmanned aircraft safely carry release their mission payloads. The LTSC combines two Exelis BRU-71/A racks, the same system Exelis supplies for the MQ-9 Reaper.
