The Typhoon MLS-ER

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems is participating at Euronaval, 27-31 October, 2014, Paris, France. At the show, Rafael will showcase a comprehensive suite of naval vessel defense solutions for detection, tracking, interception and neutralization of a variety of threats. Among its defense systems, Rafael will be displaying the following:

The C-Dome Naval Point Defense System is designed to effectively protect combat vessels against a large set of modern threats. C-Dome handles saturation attacks by engaging multiple targets simultaneously. Reaction time is very short and enables automatic and semi-automatic engagements.

The Typhoon MLS-ER, a complete Naval Missile System. The system includes Spike-ER missiles, launchers, an Electro Optical director and a fire control system. The light-weight, stabilized system can be installed on a variety of platforms, ranging from Rigid Hull Inflated Boats (RHIBs) to larger boats and ships. Spike ER is an electro-optically guided multipurpose missile for ranges of up to 8km with pinpoint accuracy.

The SPIKE NLOS, a Non-Line-Of-Sight, High-Impact tactical Missile. Spike NLOS is an electro-optically guided multipurpose missile for ranges of up to 25 km with pinpoint accuracy and midcourse navigation. The weapon system can be launched from land, air and naval platforms.

Equipped with a variety of warheads, a wireless data link to the missile, unique advantages of hitting non-line of sight (NLOS) targets and the ability to switch between targets and abort missions, Spike NLOS can be operated in both offensive and defensive scenarios. In addition to attacking hidden targets, Spike NLOS can provide real-time tactical intelligence and damage assessment.

The Sea Spotter, an advanced Naval IRST system that will enable a naval vessel to automatically locate and pinpoint threats and targets located around it without being exposed to enemy systems.

The system, dubbed Sea Spotter, is a new generation (third generation) infrared staring system that is capable of automatically locating both surface and airborne targets, super-sonic and slow, very small targets above and around the vessel, from horizon to zenith and transferring the data to the ship's combat system for interception.

The Spotlite-M, an advanced electro-optic systems for weapon fire sources Detection Location Classification & Tracking applications. The system incorporates state of the art fully operational day and night passive sensors for Multiple fire sources threats detection. Additional sensors, capabilities and applications can be added as advanced options.

The C-GEM, highly effective against current and new generation anti-ship missiles (ASMs). Modern tracking radar seeker missiles exploit the principle of mono-pulse and Lock-On Receive Only (LORO) techniques to track marine platforms. Many of these radars incorporate chaff identification and

discrimination capabilities.
