November 29, 2021– IAI has supplied the Israeli Air Force with an innovative air combat training system that enables debriefing of flight training exercises to be completed in record time. The unique air combat maneuvering instrumentation (ACMI)-based analysis system was upgraded ahead of the Blue Flag 2021 exercise that took place in Israel in October 2021, the largest and most advanced air exercise ever held in the country, with participation from air forces, including: Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Greece, India, United States and more. This year the system was embedded with display of time-critical land targets as well as display of the radiation status of systems simulating hostile air defense batteries of different kinds, including new IAI advanced systems. In addition to supplying the system, IAI has provided field services for training and combat analysis, providing “Ehud” type ACMI pods for use on the fighter jets in foreign and Israeli air forces and ground instrumentation for mobile targets. IAI also deployed its professional training staff to accompany and operate the systems during the exercise.
