Haifa, Israel (SPX) Feb 10, 2006
RAFAEL Armament Development Authority has been awarded a contract to provide its Digital Shark Electronic Counter-Measures (ECM) System for a European Corvette. The contract was awarded in an international competition.

The Digital Shark System is a state-of-the-art ECM system comprised of a modern digital receiver; an advanced DRFM based technique generator integrated with Multi Beam Array Transmitter (MBAT). This system will enable the ship's EW suite to support appropriate defensive response against all types of airborne radars, surface radars and missile seekers.

Digital Shark is part of RAFAEL SEWS Shipborne EW Suite, optimized to handle dense electromagnetic environment.

RAFAEL's SEWS suite, including the C-PEARL ESM and Shark ECM systems, is capable of modern threat identification and simultaneous jamming and deception of multiple threats. The system is fully operational and installed on a variety of ships. The system's unique architecture is designed to achieve excellent performance. Consequently, the SEWS is in wide demand by navies around the world.

RAFAEL designs and manufactures a diverse range of EW systems for Naval and Airborne applications. These systems, such as the C-PEARL ESM, Shark ECM and the SEWS Suite are designed for ship survivability, while Top-Scan ESM, Sky-Shield Support Jammer, X-Guard FOTD and Vanguard Jammer are for aircraft survivability.
