Elbit Systems Ltd. announced the acquisition of BAE Systems Rokar International Ltd. (“Rokar”) from BAE Systems, Inc., the U.S. headquartered subsidiary of BAE Systems plc for approximately $31 million net of any cash in Rokar.
Located in Jerusalem, Israel, Rokar specializes in the development, manufacture, integration, and support of high-end GPS receivers and guidance systems for advanced defence applications.
Rokar specializes in the development, manufacture, integration, and support of high-end GPS receivers and guidance systems for advanced defence applications.
GPS solutions are available for space, air, land, and naval platforms, as well as for rockets, smart munitions, and projectiles. Systems perform in challenging conditions such as radiation hardening, high roll-rates, shock resistance, high-dynamic manoeuvring, and multiple GPS jammer environments.
BAE Systems Rokar delivers GPS solutions that integrate customized hardware, software, and algorithms. Systems are designed for standalone use in a full navigation system, or as GPS boards to be embedded in an inertial system.
BAE Systems ROKAR specializes in the field of electronic countermeasures and smart dispensing systems. Within this, the company stands behind the development and production of its Advanced Countermeasures Dispensing System (ACDS), a computer-controlled, threat-adaptive countermeasure system intended to protect aircraft from both air and ground threats, through the use of decoy payloads. This system is capable of controlling and distributing multiple Flare, RF and additional types of expendable payloads, in order to provide a multi-spectral response when needed, and in accordance with programs that adapt to both parameters of the engagement and specific threats.
The SNIR (Satellite Navigation Immune Receiver) product family is designed to meet stringent requirements for overcoming emerging GPS jammer threats. SNIR integrates advanced anti-jam technologies, according to user needs, to suppress various interferences in multiple-jammer environments. These systems are installed on air, land, and naval platforms and used for a wide range of munitions. They can be integrated as anti-jamming receivers or added to legacy GPS receivers.
