IMI Systems solutions extend modern naval capabilities
The naval arena of today is facing new complicated challenges that require improved fire capabilities and enhanced level of contribution to multi-brunch military operations. IMI Systems developed a wide range of maritime solutions in order to help its customers to better address the challenges they are facing. With 80 years of experience in the development of artillery solutions and as a sole supplier of solutions to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), IMI Systems is positioned among the world’s leading companies in the development and manufacturing of fire-support systems in general, and advanced artillery solutions in particular.
Asymmetric model for enhancing ground capabilities Ground forces can be quite limited when it comes to attacking strategic targets deep in the combat zone while required to stay unrevealed. In order to achieve a more powerful and accurate fire power while avoiding exposure and still provide wide fire cover, combat forces can use the asymmetric model where maritime vessels carry the payload to the target through the open sea with the backup of ground forces for minimizing threats. Using the asymmetric military methodology facilitates an effective solution with environmental considerations and improved results.
Designed to increase naval independence and enhance its value in joint multi-branch military operations the Trigon system is a precise Sea-to-Shore weapon system with a range of 150 km, up to 120 kg payload and accuracy level of 10 meters CEP. Offering an easy and rapid deployment, day / night availability in every weather condition the Trigon system is a cost / effective, simple to operate and maintain solution, which incorporates a fixed elevation launcher that can be installed permanently or alternatively as an add-on mission module. Each Trigon system’s launcher contains 2 pods with 4 EXTRA missiles in each for a total of 8 missiles per system. Its electronic components can be installed either under deck or above it in a dedicated mission module and its operation and control panel can be installed at the CIC. In case of above deck mission module system, the control panel is installed at a designated position. The systems can be permanently integrated to the vessel or can be used as a mission module system in addition to or as a replacement of other system and its configuration can be customized according to the vessel size and operational demands in order to adjust system’s ability to carry more or less than 8 missiles as required, as well as to enable the use of variety of artillery rockets and missiles.
For small / medium size crafts IMI Systems offers the RDC (Rocket Delivery Craft) as a comprehensive system solution, which includes both the launcher and the vessel as a whole one system. With this solution vessels are tailored according to mission requirements and customer’s specific needs.
