The world’s most advanced multi-function passive Threat Warning System
“Elix-IR is the world’s most advanced multi-function, passive threat warning system. It can see further, see more, react more quickly and detect a greater variety and number of simultaneous threats than any other system,” said external communications manager Alan Rae. “It’s more accurate, too.”
Powerful threat detection
Elix-IR represents a step change in threat detection systems. Ideal for complex and challenging environments with degraded visual conditions, Elix-IR can detect and prioritise concurrent threats from shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (also known as ‘man-portable air-defence systems, or ManPADS), vehicle-launched missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and gunfire from small- to large- calibre weapons.
Ready for anything, anytime
As well as detecting and prioritising multiple threats, Elix-IR can provide a 3600 panoramic view around the aircraft for enhanced situational awareness. This is particularly useful when mounted on an unmanned air system or fed into a helmet mounted device.
Upgrades are carried out with software, rather than hardware, reducing the cost of ownership and making sure that Elix-IR is ready to protect aircraft and crew from the widest possible range of threats both now and in the future.
Elix-IR can be connected via a Common Defensive Aid System / Defensive Aid System and is compliant with the proposed NATO interface standard.
Available for export
The sale of Elix-IR is not restricted by ‘International Traffic in Arms Regulations’, making this affordable yet powerful multi-threat detection system available for export.
