Othello system will allow IDF to respond immediately to rocket fire


This week, Israel Aerospace Industries unveiled the Othello system, which is an advanced optical system that detects launches (of rockets, anti-tank missiles and artillery) by identifying the optical signature during launches.


The system is able in real-time to determine the launch site, which will allow the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to respond immediately.


The system is currently in advanced stages of testing.


The system can be installed on armored combat vehicles, light tactical vehicles and airborne platforms.


Also this week, the Rex system was unveiled. Rex is a small robotic platform capable of carrying 200 kilograms while accompanying soldiers operating in the field. Rex is intended to accompany groups of 3-10 soldiers during missions and can operate for 72 hours without refueling.


An aerospace industry official told IDF Website that "the future is unmanned robotic and aerial vehicles. We have a lot of work to do but we are advancing unmanned technologies in order to reduce casualties."
