Singapore Airshow: IAI Launches New Self-Defence Pod

Israel Aerospace Industries’ ELL-8270 is hauled “bait”


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) released a new electronic warfare system that provides an added layer of self-defence for aircraft. The system, developed by IAI’s intelligence subsidiary ELTA Group, is hauled by the aircraft, protecting it by acting as distractor to radar-guided missiles. The new hauled “bait,” named ELL-8270, is displayed at the Singapore Airshow next week.

ELL-8270 is completely autonomous, which means it needs no power or signals from the leading aircraft and is hauled behind with a simple cord. Despite its excellent efficacy, the “bait” is also less expensive than other solutions that attempt to achieve the same result. During flights in areas threatened by enemy missiles, the bait is deployed at a safe distance from the leading aircraft and emits signals to attract the missile, away from the aircraft. The system is capable of handling several threats simultaneously, can be used by all aircraft types, is extremely lightweight and can be rolled back into the aircraft or abandoned, if necessary.

The ELL-8270 joins to the ELL-8212 and ELL-8222 self-defence pods, the ELL-8265 advanced warning and positioning systems, the ELL-8260 integrative self-protection suits, and more.
