Electronic warfare, also known as electronic warfare (EW), is considered one of the most powerful means of "weakening" the enemy.
In the Second World War, the operators assigned to the ECM, took care of confusing and diverting the enemy's radars, avoiding and foreseeing any attacks.
Today, the science behind the systems used for "electronic warfare" is increasingly precise and impressive. There Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has recently presented the Scorpius system to the public, capable of hitting and destroying different types of threats at the same time.
Scorpius “flips the scale of electronic warfare, providing world-changing capabilities for electronic defense and destroying enemy systems,”
Relying on technology Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA), Scorpius is able to handle multiple frequencies at the same time, becoming even more efficient.
Let's focus for a moment on Scorpius' system of action and what changes could affect the industry and all future electrical wars.
The Scorpius system and Electronic Warfare
The Scorpius system is equipped with enviable precision, as well as a strong "adaptation" capacity.
At the same time, the IAI creation can scan the entire surrounding region, pausing in search of possible enemies / targets.
As it identifies its targets, the system prepares certain ranges of action, focused on creating a interference strong enough to significantly threaten the electromagnetic spectrum of enemies.
In a possible electronic warfare, Scorpius would help the owners to stop the attacks and arrive prepared for the possible blows of the opponents.
Israel has created a machine powerful enough to hit various types of threats without problems. Ships, missiles, UAVs, Low Probability of Intercept (LPOI) radars; any object that functions through the action of an electromagnetic spectrum stands no chance against Scorpius.
The innovation proposed by IAI
La Israel Aerospace Industries has managed to create such an interesting and powerful system, thanks to the continuous search for innovative systems for electronic warfare.
What most of all makes Scorpius noteworthy, is the sensitivity of its receiver and the incredible transmission power (ERP). These two elements are responsible for the system's speed of action and its multi-target ability - the ability to hit multiple targets at the same time.
At the moment, the system branches into three different components, capable of blocking both air and ground threats:
Ground-based EW system designed to detect and interrupt ground and air threats
Ew system dedicated to the defense of ships against advanced threats in the marine arena
self-protection system for fighter aircraft
In reference to the complete product ADI DULBERG, Director General of the Intelligence Division of the IAI, said
The modern battlefield depends on the electromagnetic domain for sensing, communications and navigation. Protecting the use of the electromagnetic domain for our forces, while denying its use by the enemy, has become critical to combat success and ensuring the superiority of our forces in the field
We just have to hope that the buyers of the IAI will learn to use a new deadly tool dedicated to electronic warfare wisely.
