ESG and IAI Networking Solution for Bundeswehr

Secure, Resilient, Cross-Domain Response to Future Challenges

ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) are partnering to provide the Bundeswehr with a proven, agile and robust cross-platform network-centric warfare (NCW) solution to meet the challenges of the future.

The Network-Enabled Operations Support (NEOS) solution enables joint all-domain operations, including airborne, naval and ground platforms. Based on IAI´s combat-proven OPAL solution, with a long history of real-time interoperability across a diverse range of combat platforms in the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) NEOS will provide a developed cross-domain, cross-platform connectivity, combining the deep technological understanding and extensive experience of both companies. The solution will enable the Bundeswehr to achieve independence by integrating a variety of German systems and sensors, while introducing unique German-based operational capabilities.

For us, as the national technology and innovation partner of the Bundeswehr, it is part of our philosophy to develop and to provide solutions and products that meet the needs and expectations of those who protect us every day in any domain. We must enable them to fulfil their challenging task with robust, reliable and high-performing technology,” explained ESG CEO, Christoph Otten, underlining the strategic significance of the collaboration.

IAI’s OPAL system is an open architecture platform and a significant force multiplier for the challenges on the modern battlefield. OPAL has been in operation for many years, participating in every operational activity, and boasts a major contribution to success in that it enables completely adaptable communication and operational capabilities across aerial, naval and ground forces. The current cooperation with ESG will take this unique solution to a higher level of performance and flexibility that will benefit the customer and both companies,” commented Yosef Melamed, EVP/GM of IAI’s Aviation Group.
