Elbit Debuts: ''ENGAGER''

Elbit Systems debuted today, during a media and analysts visit to its subsidiary, Elbit Systems Electro-optics Elop, the "ENGAGER"- a new advanced remote reconnaissance gathering system. Designed for day and night operations, the Engager is highly suited for missions such as intelligence gathering and tracking of long-range targets and laser guided weapon designation. The system has high camouflage capabilities and is remotely operated, enabling intelligence gathering while avoiding contact with enemy forces operating in the area. Developed especially for the modern battlefields' demands of "SWAP" (Size, Weight and Power), this unique system excells in low energy consumption, compact size and low weight, meeting the requirements of Infantry and Special Forces' mission profiles. Adi Dar, Elop's General Manager, commented:"The ENGAGER is the last word in solutions for meeting the challenges of intelligence gathering missions. It offers enhanced reconnaissance, while providing force survivability and safety thanks to an operational concept that enables a remote and covert mission profile with improved tactical intelligence gathering capabilities. The most sophisticated capabilities were combined in the development process of this system, positioning Elop as a world leader in the field of miniaturized designation, day/night vision systems and mission management and analysis, optimizing the intelligence gathering and targeting process. The ENGAGER is an additional leap forward in the field of tactical intelligence gathering systems developed by Elop, joining the already operational LOTUS-CR and CORAL-CR which are already in service with the IDF and other leading armies in the world."
