Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is introducing ADA-O, a variant of the ADA system that addresses GPS jammers to ensure GPS availability for land platforms. The land platform can be integrated into a range of platforms, providing operational response capabilities for telecom, navigation and C2 systems. The system supports end users such as armored vehicles, artillery, C2 centers, and communication carriers.
In addition, IAI recently won a contract to provide the ADA system to an Asia-Pacific country in a contract estimated at tens of millions of dollars. The systems to be supplied will be mounted on a range of airborne platforms in the client’s various arms. IAI was chosen for this project following a lengthy assessment process of the avionics integration and in-depth technical review of the ADA system. The contract comes on the heels of a recently-signed agreement signed by IAI’s MLM Division with Honeywell for the co-development of a jam-resistant Embedded GPS INS system (EGI).
“ADA and its new derivative ADA-O for land platforms, are an important complement for every platform that uses GNSS receivers in general and GPS in particular and a vital tool for every modern army,” said Boaz Levy, Executive VP and General Manager of IAI’s Systems, Missiles & Space Group. “Understanding the unique operational needs of land systems allowed us to perform the required modifications on IAI’s airborne anti-jam system so as to provide an advanced technological solution to the operational challenges facing the forces in the different platforms. We are proud to provide ADA and its derivatives to a range of customers worldwide.”
At the beginning of 2017, IAI won an Israeli Ministry of Defense tender for integration of anti-jam systems in one of the key platforms of the Israeli Air Force. In this project, IAI provides the IAF with a comprehensive solution based on a multi-element antenna array, implementing CRPA technology. The system’s integration allows the avionics systems that rely on satellite navigation to persist in their mission despite jamming or disruption attempts with GPS jammers or other systems designed to block satellite navigation.
