Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has added a foliage penetrating (FOPEN) radar to its ELM-2112 family of persistent ground surveillance radars. Unlike other sensors in the ELM-2112 family, the ELM-2112FP operates in the L-band, to enable better penetration of dense foliage. With this capability the new radar can penetrate 'few tens of meters' into dense vegetation, to detect moving targets hidden in dense shrubs, forests, and jungles, from a distance of several kilometers away.
Elbit Systems unveiled today a foliage penetrating radar that provides effective persistent surveillance through dense vegetation, forests and jungle. The non rotating radar is used in fixed or temporary installations, as part of perimeter or border protection systems.
