  • Elbit's New Intelligence Management Center
    Posted by David Eshel 1:33 PM on Mar 18, 2010

    Elbit Systems is developing multi-sensor fusion and display system, integrated in a new 'Intelligence Management Center' (IMC), enabling users of unmanned systems to control missions involving multiple sensors. The IMC offers unique mission control capabilities, by providing the mission commander with presentation tools  that dynamically access data from multiple sources, formatted, rectified, fused and correlated to present sensor feeds within an integrated situational picture. The system is designed for operation by a single user, drawing situational awareness and making tactical decisions based on all the relevant sources and assets under his control.

    As the mission unfolds, images are transmitted from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and high-and low-altitude electro-optic (EO). Land observations, COMINT and SIGINT are also displayed over a wide-area interactive scene, presenting  the situational picture, as well as detailed views of the objective, showing different views of the same target as seen by various sensors. Such "multi-" presentation offers the mission commander capability to assess alternative scenarios of every view, avoiding tactical failures, or risk of inflicting collateral damage or fratricide. All data received from the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) can be shared throughout the ground forces' digital C4I systems.
