March 14, 2023 – Asio Technologies, a leading developer and manufacturer of tactical solutions for defense, security, and paramilitary applications, has fulfilled a follow-on order from the IDF and recently delivered thousands of additional ORION systems. Asio Technologies solutions, including the ORION systems, are already in operational use by the IDF.
ORION (or OLAR/AMUD – as called by the IDF) is a rugged and secured mobile system for dismounted forces, enabling mission planning and real-time navigation. Using the Android platform, ORION enables mission planning, positioning, and enhanced situational awareness using the GIS database and Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.
With both online and offline operation modes, ORION serves the individual soldier or commander up to the battalion level, allowing them to get real-time updates from each other regarding friendly and hostile forces, as well as other mission-critical information. It is a scalable, multilayered, networked situational awareness solution with a highly intuitive and interactive palm-size interface.
The ORION system can communicate and interface with other ASIO Technologies tactical solutions, such as the LYNX tactical handheld day/night augmented reality situation awareness system and RIGEL tactical smartwatch, to provide a fully integrated tactical combat suit for ground forces.
David Harel, Asio Technologies CEO, said: “Another delivery of ORION systems to the IDF was completed, with additional thousands of units provided to the IDF’s ground forces. We are honored to be chosen by the IDF once again, and see this as a sign-of-proof of the added value our solutions provide. Bringing all the needed information to the palm of their hands, our ORION systems allow the maneuvering force to plan and complete their missions quickly and effectively.”
