Elbit Systems has launched a new Electronic Warfare (EW) system, the Aircrew Mobile Simulation and Training Field (AMSTF). This system enables efficient EW Training and Simulation (T&S) for pilots against realistic EW threats.

Housed in a standard mobile container, the AMSTF system incorporates a range of transmitters, sensors, communications, command and control. It also includes analytical systems to enable full spectrum coverage. This includes Radio Frequency, Infra-Red and Electro-optics. This provides aircrews with the opportunity to conduct airborne training in a real life, multi-threat EW arena.

The system records the entire session for debriefing and analysis. Positioning several AMSTF units within the training area enables users to conduct squadron and fleet training.

Designed as an open architecture system the new AMSTF trainer enables programmable and configurable operation for maximum user independence.

"As EW readiness becomes paramount to mission success and survivability, Air forces increasingly seek efficient EW training capabilities beyond the synthetic,” said Edgar Maimon, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT - Elisra.

"Integrating our operational experience in the area of EW with the company’s unique T&S capabilities enables us to put forward a solution that enables Air Forces to improve readiness while reducing costs."
