The RWR is an operational and combat-proven system, which can detect precise locations of different adversaries in normal to dense EW scenarios.

Another primary function of this receiver is to provide early and timely warnings to the combat pilot and aircrews during a mission.

In addition, the CMDS is used for delivering an automated or manual response to the aircrew.

Apart from radar warning, this EW suite offers a wide range of capabilities, including laser warning, missile warning systems and directed countermeasures.

Elbit Systems provides EW suites for several customers. It can be equipped with different types of air assets such as an uncrewed aerial system, fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters combat jets, transport, as well as commercial platforms.
