    Elbit Systems To Unveil EoShiel


    [​IMG]

    Elbit Systems will launch EoShield, a Vehicle IR Countermeasure system, at the upcoming Eurosatory exhibition in Paris. A "soft protection" system against anti-tank ground missiles, EoShield disrupts second generation anti-tank missiles and provides a 360-degree protection shield for a wide variety of vehicular, platforms.

    EoShield is a vehicular addition to the Company's airborne IR Countermeasure portfolio consisting of the MUSIC system, a multi-spectral infrared countermeasure that protects military aircraft and helicopters from shoulder-launched missiles; and the C-MUSICTM system, a commercial derivative of the military MUSIC system, which was selected for use by Israel's national carriers.

    EoShield operates continuously, without the need for any intervention of the platform's crew. The system is extremely cost effective as it does not require connectivity to Missile Warning Systems (MWS).

    It can be interfaced within a comprehensive defense array, including additional threat detection systems or be operated as a stand-alone system on the platform.

    Operating continuously and concurrently, the system can disrupt threats from various sources. It is characterized as a cost effective, low profile and signature system that can be easily integrated with any platform, while maintaining low power consumption levels. The system is fixed, with no moving parts, thus providing high reliability.

    Are Arjunmk2 and T90M not using IR countermeasures ? And if yes , why is this one better ? And if No, why is this better than others on the market (and available to us) ?

    even the brits are workin on this technology but its still too soon to say as this still has to go a lot of operational trials as this is still a new technology

    i dont know about Arjun MkII , T-90M now does have better system called arena protection system, plus this is
    soft system" whereas Arena is " hard kill system" ,it neutrslises the threat


    A more complete hemispheric protection is the Russian Arena E � developed by the Russian company KBM. The system is designed to protect the tank from attacks of anti-tank guided missiles launched from the ground and by attack helicopter and lightweight anti-tank grenades (such as RPG). The system weighs between 1 � 1.3 tons (depending on the coverage and configuration) and uses a fixed, omni-directional radar, that covers a sector of 220 � 290 degrees around the tank. The protective charges are housed in a "belt" of 22-26 protective charges (depending on the turret size and shape), each positioned to cover a specific sector. Once an incoming threat is detected by the radar, the system ejects a charge above and sideways from the tank, to a position best suited for intercepting the target. As the charge explodes, it throws a deadly hail of fragments downward, to shutter and destroy the incoming projectile. The system is capable of engaging incoming missiles, at speeds ranging from 70 to 700 meters per second. The system creates a virtual "cone" shaped shield at a radius of 20-30 meters from the tank, and its response time, from target detection to destruction is 0.07 seconds. When the system is triggered, a warning signal is activated, to warn infantrymen that may be following the tank to open some distance or take cover. The status of the Arena E system is unclear, although the system was seen in public since the mid 1990s, it is believed that funding problems delayed final development and deployment of the system.
