Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is participating at Farnborough International Airshow 2018. Rafael is a leading developer and manufacturer of advanced aerial systems provides a full aircraft munition suite from reconnaissance to navigation and targeting pods, to wideband SDR communication and precise EO air-to-ground combs. The company is presenting an array of its systems at the event.

In the Air-to-Ground category it will present Spice Family (2000, 1000, 250) of stand-off air-to-ground gliding bombs based on Rafael's unique scene-matching technology for precise hits at ranges of up to 100 km. Rafael’s new Spice-250 will also be exhibited on the Gripen (booth OE14 and on the Eurofighter aircraft, booth OE19/20.

In Electro-optics Rafael’s new Skyspotter will be displayed. It is an advanced EO sensor for real-time airspace monitoring, early detection, and accurate tracking of aerial objects, including drones, aircraft, UAV’s, etc. When connected to Rafael’s Drone Dome, the integrated system also enables interception of the targets, using a high-power laser beam.

Other products include Reccelite XR - New generation, day/night electro-optical tactical reconnaissance pod for real-time imagery collection and data transfer, and Litening 5 - Multi-spectral airborne targeting pod for targeting and designation of targets by day and night from large standoff ranges.

Drone Dome – Innovative end-to-end system designed to provide effective airspace defence against hostile drones will be another highlight. Drone Dome has 360° circular coverage and is designed to detect, track, and neutralize drones either by jamming their communication or destroying them using a laser beam. Rafael will be at Chalet B15.
