Ramat HaSharon, Israel, November 16, 2016 – IMI Systems (formerly Israel Military Industries) demonstrated last week a full spectrum of its advanced solutions for the next generation of artillery systems to a gathering of senior officials from 17 countries including a number of NATO members.
The presentation showcased live firing of the Accular, a high-precision guided rocket for ranges of up to 40 km, the highly accurate 155 mm shell developed by IMI Systems in cooperation with BAE Systems Rokar, and an activation of EXTRA missile 120kg warhead.
The EXTRA missile is designed to attack qualitative targets from 30 km up to a range of 150 km.
In addition, IMI Systems presented advanced artillery radars manufactured by Elta, a UAV from Elbit, and a regional meteorology system made by the Mer Group. The event, which took place at an undisclosed IDF firing range located in southern Israel, was hosted by IMI Systems’ newly appointed Chairman, Mr. Yitzhak Aharonovitch, and CEO, Mr. Avi Felder.
“The success of this demonstration further enhances IMI Systems’ already established position as a world leading systems house for unique artillery systems,” said Mr. Aharonovitch.
