HEMUS 2022: Rafael Focuses on Bulgaria’s 8×8 Programme

Wide Range of Supporting Capabilities Also on Show

Rafael is showcasing a broad range of capabilities at HEMUS 2022, but prominent in its exhibit is an approach to Bulgaria’s 8×8 combat vehicle programme, for which it offers a complete package of systems that enable and enhance survivability, manoeuvrability and lethality.

A core component is the Samson 30mm integrated RWS, addressing modern battlefield threats with a combination of advanced, reliable, and effective solutions, including potential integration of Spike LR-1 and -2 multi-purpose missiles. Samson features: the capability to locate sources of fire; to effectively return fire; faster, more accurate slew-to-cue; a unified user interface for all subsystems; a hatch for close situational awareness; and under-armour ammunition storage.

The company will also present a number of systems that have proven their capabilities in service with European and NATO partners:

  • Spyder air defence system – now being integrated into NATO via the Czech Republic;
  • Spike missile family – being manufactured in Europe;
  • BNET family of software-defined radios;
  • Advanced Vehicle Integrated Combat Systems (A-VICS);
  • Sea Breaker 5th-generation precision guided missile;
  • Typhoon Naval C-UAS RWS;
  • C-Dome air and missile defence system;
  • Torbuster 4th-generation naval decoy and defence system;
  • Vessel Protection Suite (VPS) – integrated soft and hard kill solutions for maritime vessels;
  • Coastal Defence Solution – AI-based connectivity and communications solution.

All these and more will be supported by company epxperts and executives able to discuss the application of any or all these solutions to current and future problems and requirements.
