IAI Integrates BARAK MX Interceptor on SA’AR 6 Corvettes

Enhanced Capabilities for Evolving Threat Envelope

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is integrating offensive and defensive systems to enhance the SA’AR 6 corvette’s capabilities, the company stated at DSEI 2021 on 14 September.

The company’s BARAK MX interceptors and its complete naval combat suite will provide advanced defense systems to the Israel Navy’s corvettes. The systems will be used to protect Israel’s EEZ, and strategic facilities that face diversified threats in the marine arena. The BARAK MX system was chosen after it was demonstrated to meet the operational requirements and future challenges faced by the Israeli Navy.

IAI’s naval solutions are battle-proven and set new standards for maritime domain awareness, naval combat systems, network-centric operations, EEZ protection, and coastal security. From sensors and weapon systems to integrated systems-of-systems, IAI offers a broad portfolio of solutions to the requirements and challenges of today’s naval forces. These combat systems are designed to maximise and optimise the individual systems’ performance and capabilities in a manner that will enable them to operate synergistically with efficiency and full effectiveness.

The BARAK MX is an advanced operational air defence system in use with IDF naval forces and the Indian Land, Navy and Air Force. It provides both wide-area and targeted defence capabilities against an array of threats, including: land, air and sea. The system aggregates several key systems: digital radar, weapon control system, launchers, and a range of interceptors for different ranges, with advanced homing devices, data-link communication and system wide connectivity.  The BARAK family includes various ranged interceptors – for 35, 70 and 150km – and combines the capability to intercept threats from naval and land platforms.

Boaz Levy, President and CEO of IAI, commented “The combat and air defence systems installed on the SA’AR corvettes represent the significant tier now being integrated on the rest of Israel’s air defence array, an integral aspect of IAI’s system wide naval solutions. With land and naval modules, the system provides a complete response to a wide range of threats and is developed to work with other systems. IAI’s air defence systems boast successful, combat-proven operational experience.
