Israel Navy Developing New Command And Control System

The Jerusalem Post reports: The Israel navy is developing a new command and control system for its vessels, which will enable it to strike targets on shore from the sea in less time, and play a larger part in air defense, a senior source told the Jerusalem Post this week.

The source, from the navy’s C4i (Command and Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence Unit), said the new system, will replace the current one, which has seen six upgrades since being introduced in the 1990s.

The new system will become operational on the four Sa’ar 6 warships the navy will receive from 2017 to 2019. It will also be extended to all vessels. The Sa’ar 6 ships will be the largest in the navy and will help it protect offshore gas drilling rigs in the Exclusive Economic Zone. The arrival of the ships is also a growth engine for research, development and funding for the C4i Branch, the source said.
