Tight integration between sensors,
weapon systems and command levels is already reflected throughout
all levels of the Israel Defense Forces. The armor and mechanized
units are receiving elements of "Battle Management Systems" (BMS).
These units developed by Elbit Systems, integrate the vehicle's
sensors such as tank commander's thermal sights, navigation and
communications systems. The sight images, viewed by the tank
commander, can be transmitted and shared by other crew members of
his unit, as well as by commanders at higher echelons.
Elevated views of the area, as captured
by a UAV, and other elevated sensors can also be shared by all
units, equipped with Tadiran Spectralink's vehicular Tactical
Video Receiver (V-TVR). The user can tune into the channel of a
specific sensor, presenting the video and telemetry on the
vehicle's digital display. Similar equipment is used by helicopter
pilots, to receive UAV sensor data directly from the UAVs,
en-route to their target. Similar devices are also provided to
dismounted commanders, equipped with the V-Rambo kit – comprising
miniature receiver, and wrist display.
