LOD, ISRAEL (BNS): Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has delivered Green Rock - a mobile autonomous tactical counter Rocket, Artillery & Mortar (C-RAM) system to the Israel Defence Forces.

This system named 'Wind Shield' by IDF was unveiled at the Eurosatory exhibition which concluded recently.

Green Rock is designed to support a variety of ground force protection missions, including fire source location, friendly forces fire correction, and detection of low-flying airborne targets such as UAVs, gliders and hovering platforms.

The system provides a complete low/high trajectory target, real-time intelligence and rapid response solution for tactical forces. Green Rock's mission is to locate fire squad positions, distribute selective warning alarms and enable an effective fire response.

The system, developed by ELTA systems, an IAI group and subsidiary, can be installed on a variety of mobile or stationary platforms such as armoured personnel carriers, high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles, and all-terrain vehicles.

Green Rock includes a Phased-Array Pulse Doppler Radar which acquires and tracks the trajectories of ballistic munitions such as rockets, artillery and mortars, calculates the point from which they were launched, and predicts the location of the expected impact.

This information is reported, via a communications system, to friendly forces to indicate and provide warning of relevant threats. Data can be also sent to precision weapons systems to allow a rapid and accurate response to source of the threat.

Based on field-proven mature systems, Green Rock is highly reliable, provides a high detection range and impact point accuracy. It does not require active cooling, and allows for fast deployment and autonomous operation, according to IAI.
