  • Elbit to Supply Laser Systems in Israel, North America
Nov 2010
HAIFA, Israel, Nov. 2, 2010 — International defense electronics company Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that it received various contracts to supply a number of types of laser systems to customers in Israel and North America.

To be delivered over the next two years, the order was received by Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop Ltd. (Elop), an advanced laser technology developer of diode-pumped and fiber lasers for laser designators, laser radars and laser-based airborne defense systems. The laser systems will be implemented in airborne applications, including helicopters and UAS.

“The increasing demand for advanced laser systems, specifically miniaturized designators, is due to their ability to perform with high precision and prevent collateral damage,” said Adi Dar, general manager of Elop. “Our advanced laser solutions, including our miniaturized Rattler designator for small airborne and ground applications, have enabled bringing precision targeting to use on a wider scale.”

fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
laser designator
A laser device used to establish a location or target usually for detection by an impact source e.g. missiles and guided munitions. Laser designation sources utilize a system configuration which is optically corrected in order to reach long distances as well as small losses in order to increase performance.
