Forssa, Finland and Haifa, Israel, April 29, 2019 – DA–Group and Elbit Systems signed an agreement to partner on the production and marketing of immune solutions to Global Navigation Satellite Systems. Under the agreement DA-Group will produce and market Elbit Systems’ Immune Satellite Navigation System (iSNS).
“DA-Group is pleased to start collaborating with Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT – Elisra, a clear industry leader”, states Sami Kotiniemi, CEO of DA-Group, adding: “The iSNS solution is in high demand due to rapidly increasing GPS jamming threats. There has recently been GPS interferences in the Nordic region. For example, media reported earlier this year that the GPS navigation of passenger aircraft in northern Scandinavia was repeatedly paralyzed, also having an interference impact on the Finnish territory. iSNS superior performance provides effective and efficient solution to this rising operational need.”
Edgar Maimon, General Manager of Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT – Elisra, commented: “Europe is a key market for us. We are proud to join forces with DA-Group, a technology leader in Finland, in order to address the growing demand for robust and operationally proven immune solutions.”
Elbit Systems’ iSNS has an operationally proven capacity to provide reliable, non-stop GPS operation providing comprehensive jamming immunity over extensive geographical areas for multiple satellite channels, handling multiple interfering signals and/or jammers that operate on concurrent frequencies. iSNS is compatible with all types of GPS systems, without prior knowledge of the locations of GPS satellite or GPS receiver antenna. Modular and customizable, iSNS is designed for a wide variety of land, sea and airborne applications, in the defence and in other governmental areas. Its small footprint enables adaptation to compact platforms, and it can be installed as an independent add-on kit.
