Elbit Systems is unveiling its latest small, unmanned aerial system (UAS) - the Skylark 3 at the Singapore Airshow 2016. Skylark 3 extend the company's family of small UAS, introducing a larger platform designed to support the brigade level.
Elbit Systems today unveiled its latest unmanned system – the Seagull autonomous, modular, multi-mission Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV). The vessels are designed primarily for Anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and Mine-Countermeasures (MCM) operations.
Common coaxial cables could be made 50 percent lighter with a new nanotube-based outer conductor developed by Rice University scientists. “Our cable meets military standards, but we’re able to supply the strength and flexibility without the bulk.” said research scientist Francesca Mirri.
New thrusters system designed for the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) of the Ground Based Interceptor (GBI) missile have passed an important validation test yesterday. The planned test that was originally scheduled for late 2015 did not include a target intercept. The test evaluated the CE-II EKV that demonstrated the performance of alternate divert thrusters in a flight environment. It also performed end-to-end discrimination of a complex target scene through the GMD fire control loop. The next flight test will conduct full intercept of a target simulating an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICMB).
