Elisra Announces Success of Joint U.S.-Israel Exercise in Shared Active Defense Battle Lab

10:21 GMT, February 8, 2011 Holon, Israel | Elisra, a world leader in EW, intelligence and communications, announces the success of a joint U.S.-Israeli exercise which was carried out recently in its Active Defense Battle Lab, jointly shared by the Israeli Air Force (IAF), the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).

The Active Defense Battle Lab is developed and maintained by Elisra's Tadiran Electronics Systems Division since its inception in the early 90's, under contract with the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD) and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA). An end-to-end simulator of Theater Missile Defense, the Lab simulates attacks against defended assets, and the operation of defense systems against those attacks.

The computerized exercise was wide in scope, including operational forces and combat fighters and simulated a ballistic missile attack on Israel and the use of Israeli and U.S. Missile Defense Systems.

A large group of U.S. and Israeli officers from the various operational units participated in the exercise. In addition, a large number of high ranking officers and senior officials from both countries attended the exercise and evaluated the overall operational architecture of the IAF's Active Defense Array, which was set to function in conjunction with the U.S. systems that are deployed in Israel.

The preparation and execution of the exercise earned high praise from all participants. Participants and observers of the exercise consider the Active Defense Battle Lab developed by Elisra to be the most advanced battle lab in the world for simulating Active Defense against ballistic missiles. The Lab is also used to develop the doctrine, coordination and concept of operation between the joint forces and to help engineers to build the Active Missile Defense Systems Architecture.
