Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy have been briefed by Israel Aerospace Industries subsidiary ELTA on its Scorpius-G (ELL-8256SB) a Next Generation Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) RF Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) jamming system that can be adapted for both ground-based and Naval platforms that company claims are the world’s first EW system “capable of simultaneously targeting multiple threats, across frequencies and in different directions.
According to IAI, Scorpius’ AESA’s multi-beam capability allows the system to “simultaneously scan the entire surrounding region for targets, and deploy narrowly focused beams to interfere with multiple threats across the electromagnetic spectrum.” Scorpius can effectively disrupt radar and electronic sensors, navigation, and data communications, the company said.
Scorpius provides EW defensive capabilities for various domains, including the mobile, ground-based Scorpius-G to detect and disrupt ground and airborne threats. The Scorpius-N naval system defends ships against “Over-the-Horizon Anti-Ship Cruise Missiles, Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles, and airborne imaging radars” at extended range through early detection and targeting.
