ES-5080 - Digital Receiver Based ELINT/ESM System

The ES-5080 can detect radio frequency (RF) emissions from submarines, surface ships, aircraft and land-based radars.

The system architecture combines omnidirectional and high-gain spinning dish antennas with wideband synthesized superheterodyne tuners and digital receivers. This combination provides high system sensitivity and parameter measurement accuracy, which is needed for receiving today’s complex, low-power radars at long ranges.

The flexible architecture provides easily tailorable system configurations:

  • Single channel
  • Single-operator system to full multi-receiver
  • Multi-operator ESM/ELINT system

The ES-5080 system uses a Windows interface for emitter graphical analysis and display. The user-friendly, graphics-based human-machine interface (HMI) allows operators to easily interpret and understand the signal environment. The HMI can also be run on multi-function consoles.
