ISRAEL - New Electronic Warfare Systems

Arno Froese

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) unveiled a family of new electronic warfare (EW) systems which can combat a range of threats, including UAVs, ships, missiles and radar systems.

The Scorpius family of systems scans the entire surrounding area for targets and deploys narrowly focused beams to interfere with multiple threats across the electromagnetic spectrum. The system effectively disrupts the operation of electromagnetic systems, including radar, electronic sensors, navigation and data communications.

The Scorpius N defends ships against advanced threats, including cruise missiles, UAVs and airborne imaging radars. The system’s extremely high range provides early detection and targeting of threats.

“The modern battlefield depends on the electromagnetic domain for sensing, communications and navigation,” said Adi Dulberg, general manager of IAI’s Intelligence Division. “Protecting the use of the electromagnetic domain for our forces, while denying its use by the enemy, has become mission-critical for success in combat and for ensuring the superiority of our forces in the field.

“The new technology, developed by IAI’s talented engineers, tips the scale of electronic warfare, providing world-first breakthrough capabilities for electronic defense and disrupting enemy systems.”, 11 November 2021

Arno's Commentary

The world at large, whether friend or foe, increasingly takes note of Israel’s high-tech capacity; in this case, military defense.

Enemies—in particular Iran—continue to publicly denounce Israel, predicting the end of the Zionist State. But, as is self-evident, Israel has other ideas. 

It is of interest that the system is called Scorpius, obviously taken from Greek mythology. It is one of the zodiac constellations.

From Revelation 9, we learn that the fifth angel sounds the trumpet, causing the bottomless pit to be opened. Unearthly creatures emerge, who will punish mankind: “And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man” (Revelation 9:5).
