Tel Aviv: Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled Compact ADA, offering reduced Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), an advanced system that protects avionic systems from GNSS jamming.

The Compact ADA system maintains assured PNT (Position, Navigation and Timing) by overcoming GNSS jamming, and ensuring that tactical platforms can continue to operate with consistent GNSS availability as compared to most navigation, communication, and warfare systems which depend on the continuous availability of GPS/GNSS signals. However, the cheap, low-end equipment, can seriously degrade GNSS Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) even to the point of total solution denial.

IAI has over 20 years of proven experience in supplying a wide range of GNSS Anti-Jam solutions for the most demanding requirements, and vast experience in integrating immune navigation solutions into airborne (manned and UAV), surface, maritime and guided munitions.

Compact ADA is a derivative of the ADA system adapted to air tactical platforms. The Compact ADA offers the benefits from the advanced immunity capabilities of ADA in tactical platforms. The ADA product portfolio, developed by IAI, is compatible with a broad range of satellite navigation systems (GNSS). Its state-of-the-art technology implements multiple mitigation methods and specialised digital signal processing algorithms. The system’s versatility facilitates the integration into numerous platforms.

Jacob Galifat, General Manager of the IAI’s MALAM Division commented, “With the threats that GNSS faces today, these systems are a must for any platform using GPS, or any other Global Satellite Navigation Systems. Our operationally proven systems ensure the availability of GPS and GNSS-based systems, even in the most contested, EW-saturated battle space. Considering the operational challenges, this system has considerable export potential for many air forces and armies who experience GNSS jamming in combat zones.”

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is a world-leading aerospace and defence company innovating and delivering state-of-the-art technologies in space, air, land, naval, cyber and homeland security for defence and commercial markets.

Combining the “Start-up Nation” spirit of innovation with decades of combat-proven experience, IAI provides customers with tailor-made, cutting-edge solutions to the unique challenges they face, including satellites, UAVs, missiles, intelligence solutions, weapon systems, air defence systems, robotic systems, radars, business jets, aerostructures, and more.
