Salon Eurosatory : les armes israéliennes s’exportent en Europe

56 entreprises israéliennes étaient présentes au salon Eurosatory. Les exportations militaires israéliennes ont battu un record en 2021 : avec 11,2 Md$, elles « ont réalisé une augmentation de 55% en deux ans », affirme le brigadier général Yair Kulas, chef de la Sibat (International Defense Cooperation Directorate du ministère de la Défense). L'Europe est le premier client, avec 41% du total des exportations, contre 30% en 2020, suivie par la région Asie-Pacifique (34%), l'Amérique du Nord (12%) et les pays du Golfe (7%). A Eurosatory, la société Elbit, notamment, a présenté « Raketa », un nouveau système radar capable de suivre plusieurs objets dans l'espace, ce qui élimine la nécessité de hiérarchiser les cibles. Israel Aircraft Industries a dévoilé l'OTHELLO-P, un nouveau système de détection de tir passif haute performance (GDS), qui augmente la capacité de survie et la capacité des troupes à riposter.

The milestone saw the first jig-load for a Triton intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) UAV for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) take place at Northrop Grumman’s Moss Point facility in Mississippi. Final assembly and flight testing will follow at the company’s Palmdale facility and at Edwards Air Force Base in California, ahead of delivery to Australia in 2023. “The MQ-4C Triton will be a very important ISR capability for Australia,” Air Commodore Terry van Haren, the RAAF’s air attaché to the Australian Embassy in the United States, said during the ceremony that was also attended by senior Australian and US government and military figures. “It is ideally suited for Australian operating conditions, given its high altitude, long endurance, and impressive sensor suite. The Royal Australian Air Force looks forward to operating the MQ-4C alongside its other ISR and response aircraft such as the [Boeing] P-8A Poseidon [maritime multimission aircraft (MMA)].” Australia currently has three Tritons in the US Navy’s (USN’s) low-rate initial production (LRIP) Lot 5, which also includes two main operating bases, and one forward operating base for the country in an integrated functional capability-four (IFC-4) and multiple intelligence configuration. IFC-4 functionality will add a signals intelligence capability to the UAV’s baseline IFC-3 configuration. https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/northrop-grumman-begins-building-first-triton-uav-for-australia
