Elbit Systems launched today a new member of the Dominator® IICS (Integrated Infantry Combat System) solution: Dominator-Light Dismounted (LD), a new lightweight version, geared specifically for the tactical dismounted infantry soldier and Special Forces. The new Dominator-LD is a soldier centric solution, based on the vast experience accumulated by the Dominator® IICS solution. While the Dominator® IICS is well suited for the command level, the extremely lightweight Dominator-LD is the ultimate command and control (C2) solution for the individual soldier level.
Enabling full situational awareness via network-integrated information systems, this unique solution provides superior mobility due to its reduced size, weight and power (SWaP). Dominator-LD is comprised of Elbit Systems' RAPTOR rugged, all-in-one wearable computing unit, the TORC2H –D command and control application and the highly advanced Tadiran PNR-1000A, a compact, lightweight, personal network radio. An add-on capability for a comprehensive on-the-move situational awareness picture is the JS Eyepiece handheld display unit. The new solution includes a load cartridge system for the fighting soldier, designed based on years of experience and lessons learned in fielding digital soldier systems in operational environments. Dominator-LD has a unique modular approach, enabling a small number of components to be configured in the field in various ensembles, to support different operational needs. Dominator-LD weighs less than 1kg for over 24 hours of operational use, offering a revolutionary C4I system that significantly improves the soldier’s lethality, mobility and survivability in the changing requirements of the modern battlefield.
When outfitted with Dominator-LD, soldiers can send and receive information in real-time, view an up-to-the-minute common operational picture, access live videos from either external or on-body sensors and transmit images and positions back to the command post and colleagues. The solution's modular design and open architecture enables easy growth potential through integration with any Battle Management Systems (such as Elbit's TORC2H®) and coalition forces as well as with all of the Dominator® IICS systems and sub-systems, among them the Skylark® I-LE Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), the Mars un-cooled thermal imaging camera, the Coral thermal imaging camera, the S-NAV soldier navigating system and more.
