L3Harris And Elta Systems Expanding Partnership For AEW&C Solutions

L3Harris Technologies and Israel Aerospace Industries’ ELTA Systems Group (ELTA) are expanding their teaming agreement to provide leading-edge, U.S. and NATO interoperable Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) solutions based on ELTA’s proven Conformal AEW, installed on a high-performance business jet.

Basically, the companies are offering a missionized Bombardier Global 6500, integrated by L3Harris, with ELTA’s latest next-generation AEW systems and operationally-proven Battle Management Command and Control Suite.

Also, the solution includes L3Harris’ interoperable communications suite.

To be noted that the Global 6500 AEW&C will fly higher, faster, longer and at a lower cost to sustain, operate and maintain than existing AEW&C platforms.

The companies are proposing, in cooperation with Korean Air Lines, this leading edge Global 6500 AEW&C solution for the Republic of Korea Air Force’s AEW&C Program, NATO’s interim Allied Future Surveillance and Control (AFSC) Program and to several other NATO partners.
