New Israeli Artillery Concepts, Technology Combine

 

Israel’s artillery corps is undergoing a virtual revolution. Not only will it be equipped with new self-propelled (SP) cannons, precision rockets and missiles, and state-of-the-art command, control, computers and communications, but its operational role will reflect a new concept, making artillery an equal part of the combat force versus being a support element.

 

con una massiccia iniezione di tecnologia l'obiettivo diventa la maggior precisione

The change comes as the traditional role of artillery is shifting from its historical approach — overwhelming, statistical fire — to precision fire. That precision is made possible by accurate positioning and more precise tube artillery fire, enabled by using more accurate propellants, as well as better weather measurement and accurate fire-control capabilities down to the individual gun or rocket launcher.

 

Nel dettaglio, maggior precisione, maggior accuratezza nel raggiungimento dell'obiettivo, minore dispersione di missili, meno effetti collaterali:

 

Today the IDF uses the U.S.’s Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), loaded mostly with Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munitions designed for suppressive firepower against area targets at long ranges. When Israel fielded MLRS, an enhancement system was developed to reduce the dispersion of the rockets, using the Trajectory Correction System (TCS), developed by Israel Military Industries (IMI) and Elisra.

In the low-intensity and asymmetric warfare that the IDF has engaged in over the last decade, the accuracy of statistical fire was often inadequate, causing collateral damage and subsequent foreign relations headaches for Israel. This led the IDF to limit the use of artillery fire, reducing support and increasing the risk to its combat units. Recently, IMI introduced the trajectory-corrected Accular 160mm rocket capable of hitting targets at up to 40 km with a circular error point (CEP) of less than 10 meters (33 ft.). Accular uses a GPS system and two stacks of thrusters to shape the rocket’s ballistic trajectory. Impressed with the results, the IDF is set to order the first battalion by year’s end, hoping the new capability will regain the artillery corps’ capability to employ fires in anti-terror missions in complex terrain and urban targets.

While precision rockets are fielded with the artillery brigades, IDF battalions are being equipped with the M113-mounted Keshet self-propelled mortar system, providing “pocket artillery” for the armored battalion. A lighter system designed to support the infantry battalions is the new Spear 120mm autonomous, soft-recoil mortar system developed by Elbit’s Soltam subsidiary. The company has already tested the system on a modified Humvee. These self-propelled mortars use a special recoil system, reducing the barrel firing load, typically 120 tons, to less than 10 tons, so that a relatively light chassis can sustain the firing jolt. As a result, Spear can sustain a high rate of fire of up to 15 rounds per minute, and deliver accurate fire with a 30-meter CEP.

Sono ignorante in materia, non sono riuscito a sapere se in Israele le donne,che pure sono soggette ad un lungo obbligo di leva, sono anche tenute a prendere parte ad operazioni in prima linea. Che io sappia già in passato diversi eserciti avevano forti componenti femminili, ad esempio l'URSS,però non mi sembra che andassero in trincea o prendessero parte agli assalti, però è possibile che in un esercito molto peculiare come l'IDF queste limitazioni non abbiano vigore.

Israel develops autonomous anti-IED robot

 

IDF Ground Forces develop a new robotic engineering scout that will move on its own and detonate explosives, significantly reducing risk combat engineering soldiers face

 

Detonating explosives from far away: The robotic engineering scout, currently under development, utilizes a variety of engineering capabilities to overcome dangerous ground obstacles and explosives. The robot uses a navigation system that enables it to move on its own, an explosive detection system, and a variety of detonation methods.

 

The system will be used as a preliminary engineering tracker in urban settings and open fields. The operator will identify a suspicious area and the robot will be able to calculate and carry out a series of necessary operations in order to get to the spot. Without using a joystick to direct it, the robot will scan the area, locate explosives or mines and detonate them.

Israel touts unmanned ground vehicle operations

 

As the Guardium UGV takes its nightly patrol along Gaza’s border, the scene is quiet. Many miles away, a pair of operators scans the wide array of cameras, taking in 360 degrees of information. Suddenly, a red glow appears on the thermal cameras and slowly takes a human shape. Lights blare and confirm that someone is approaching the fence. A voice booms from the Guardium frightening the suspect. He cries out “is someone in there?” before thinking twice and running.

 

First Sgt. Chen Vidal, the UGV system’s chief mechanic, comments on the psychological effect of the system. “To the Palestinians, it’s largely an unknown quantity, they have no idea what it’s capable of,” he said. “It’s futuristic looking and the fact that no one’s inside instils a bit of fear- it’s a potent psychological weapon.”

capisco la necessità di non esporre i pochi giovani istraeliani, pochi rispetto alla numerosissima popolazione dei Paesi arabi, a grandi rischi in operazioni routinarie come il pattugliamento dei confini,però questo veicolo è un passo deciso verso la fabbricazione di un terminator reale. Questo scenario è pericoloso, bisognerebbe limitare queste armi robotiche come si cerca di fare con le chimiche e nucleari,

Roboteam introduces new tactical mini robots

 

The Israeli robotics developer Roboteam is introducing a new miniature robot designed for intelligence gathering and counter IED (C-IED) operations. The ultra-light, 13-lb, highly maneuverable robot can be carried by an individual soldier, climbs stairs and 60⁰ obstacles, operates effectively indoors utilizing secure MANET data link.

Externally, MTGR looks different than any robot today. At a gross weight of 13 pounds (5.9kg), the backpacked MTGR weighs less than half of other robots in its climbing stairs class.

...

The MTGR is designed to deliver video and acoustic intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. Fitted with built-in color-zoom video camera and laser illuminator, both can tilt up or down, and additional four low-light CMOS cameras covering 360 degrees, the robot has a standard accessory port interfacing with power, Ethernet, RS232 and video / data connection. Mil Std. 1913 Picatiny rail accepts an additional day/night camera, a micro-manipulator to move debris or emplace counter-IED micro-charges. Another sensor payload called SAFIRE developed by the company, provides real time distance measurement using passive multi stereoscopic image processing (instead of Laser radar LIDAR), for semi-autonomous operations. Other built-in features include a GPS receiver, inertial sensors and magnetic compass, allowing position reporting (Blue Force Tracking) and C4I integration even when the robot operates in GPS denied areas, underground or indoors.

Elbit to Supply the Israeli MoD with Cardom Artillery Systems http://www.defense-aerospace.com/article-view/release/141462/israel-orders-cardom-artillery-systems.html

 

 

Elbit Systems Ltd. subsidiary, Elbit Systems Land and C4I Ltd. was recently awarded a contract by the Israeli Ministry of Defense to supply Cardom artillery systems (known in the Israel Defense Forces as "Keshet").

The contract, to be performed over six years, was part of the company's December 31, 2012 announcement regarding a total of approximately $315 million in IMOD awards for several contracts in different areas. The Cardom award is a follow-on to a contract for the Israeli Defense Forces (“IDF”) awarded in September 2011.

Udi Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems’ Land and C4I Division commented: "This additional IMOD contract attests to the maturity and the quality of the Cardom’s operational performance in the IDF and other armies worldwide. We are witnessing a growing global demand for the supply of advanced artillery systems and we hope that additional customers will select our solutions to address their artillery needs".

Cardom integrates a 120mm mortar with innovative fire control, navigation, automatic aiming and propulsion systems. Considered among the most advanced systems of its kind in the world, Cardom is operational in the IDF as well as various armies in Europe, the United States and other countries. The systems have also been deployed in combat zones.

Muore Ariel Sharon il macellaio di Sabra e Shatila massimo rispetto per le vittime della follia espansionistica dei gerarchi israeliani

tralasciando la follia espansionistica... che è appunto una follia ed un non-sense discreto... la Commissione Kahan accusò Sharon (che fu costretto alle dimissioni), e non solo, di negligenza per non aver saputo prevenire e/o fermare il massacro perpetuato dai Falangisti, in qualità di ministro della difesa. ovviamente, in uno stato di "gerarchi" non sarebbe mai esistita una commissione che li accusava ed un popolo che li faceva dimettere.

 

che poi Sharon sia stato un falco non ci piove, ma da questo al macellaio ne passa. a questo punto, sarebbero macellai l'occidente e la russia per non fermare i massacri in Siria, il mondo interno per l'Africa e, perchè no... anche gli olandesi a Srebrenica.

Hai perfettamente ragione infatti lo sono tutti nei casi da te citati.

Posto che non si può pretendere che le 'potenze', qualunque esse siano, possano sempre e comunque intervenire per fermare guerre e massacri (mi pare semplicistico, anche senza scomodare la Realpolitik) di certo fra Srebrenica e Sabra e Chatila vi sono notevoli analogie, sfortunatamente ben peggiori per gli Israeliani.

 

Mentre, infatti, le forze ONU in campo in Jugoslavia erano poca cosa (poi possiamo discutere del chiamare o no gli aerei, delle regole di ingaggio vigenti eccetera) di certo un tribunale Olandese ha detto che ci sono specifiche responsabilità, almeno citandoil caso dei tre bosniaci che chiesero asilo al campo ONU, e furono uccisi perchè gli fu impedito di entrare:

 

http://www.stefanogiantin.net/balkans/strage-di-srebrenica-olanda-condannata-%C2%ABnon-fermo-mladic%C2%BB/

 

Il Libano fu un film tutto diverso: Li (e la ricostruzione di Wiki italiana è anche abbastanza fedele) gli Israeliani erano fuori dai campi (gli israeliani, non quattro gatti coi caschi blu), fecero entrare le milizie cristiane libanesi, a cui fu permesso, senza tante chiacchiere. di vendicarsi dell'assassinio di Gemayel, su gente inerme.

 

Questi, i fatti. Oggettivamente, una delle peggiori pagine della storia Israeliana, di cui Sharon era uno dei principali responsabili.
