Successful flight-testing campaign achieved for Flashhawk

Successful flight-testing campaign achieved for Flashhawk

Aix-en-Provence, France - October 12th , 2021. 

Avantix today announces that its “FlashHawk” COMINT/C-ESM[1] airborne solution for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) has been successfully tested and evaluated by the French Armament General Directorate (Direction générale de l’armement, DGA) which was thus able to get an overview of the performances of the integrated system – following a demanding flight test campaign.

FlashHawk is a state-of-the-art COMINT/C-ESM solution that provides an instantaneous 3D geolocation image of ground emitters from the air. FlashHawk is supporting ISR operators to get an immediate tactical situation awareness of emitter on the ground under the aircraft up to the horizon 360° around it. Combined with the existing aircraft electro-optical/infra-red sensor, it allows rapid target identification for actionable intelligence.

FlashHawk can easily be installed and deployed on various types of multi-mission airborne platforms such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle : fixed wing and vertical takeoff and landing) balloons, airplanes and helicopters. The solution combines mission information system, processing unit and antenna – all qualified for airborne application.

Our field-proven solutions allow broad-spectrum Signals Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (SIGINT and ISR), including over radar or radio transmissions. This enables our customers to protect citizens, infrastructure, and military assets. Avantix and its R&D capacities are located in Aix-en-Provence, France. For more information:

Search and rescue

Search and rescue

With Avantix COMINT, manage your search and rescue missions. After a natural disaster, in high-mountain, after a snow avalanche, wherever the communication network is off. With Avantix COMINT solution, air boarded or ground-based, quantify and localize missing persons via mobile interception. Actionable intelligence for forces responders, who can operate on the ground with very precise victims location.
Raid Shadow for demining mission

Raid Shadow for demining mission

Raid Shadow for manpacked and transportable missions: Avantix lightweight smart-reactive jammer. The Raid Shadow system has been designed to equip police and military teams in the context of demining missions and protection of sensitive areas. Developed to scramble RCIED, Raid Shadow protects teams in a 10m radius. Landed or man-packed, Raid Shadow is the protection system for risky on-site missions.
ELSIM for mission preparation and EW systems validation

ELSIM for mission preparation and EW systems validation

Before mission, ELSIM Hw generates RF signals to ensure Electronic Warfare systems and radar functions. Powered by Caracal, Avantix database, ELSIM generates real-life signals to control quality of mission sensors. Integrated into shelter, ELSIM works as an active answer signals to various platforms (air, land, sea). ELSIM enables radar signals air emission on antenna for test, aero and naval validation for tactical simulation. ELSIM allows test bench, for prep-mission validation and laboratory test of entire EW system with unplugged signal emission.
ELIT R-ESM for instantaneous tactical situation awareness 

ELIT R-ESM for instantaneous tactical situation awareness 

Operator orientated, this application enables friendly and un-friendly radar signals identification and analysis through a handy map interface.
For navy and military application, ELIT R-ESM leans on environment surveillance to identify the nature of raw signals.
For operation success: Mission, Avantix database embarked library focused on mission environment and potential threats.

Avantix ELIT systems can be integrated into aircraft, for aerospace surveillance. Our ELIT systems are also developed to answer to navy missions and shelter configuration for landed mobile surveillance.

Black Shadow for infrastructure protection

Black Shadow for infrastructure protection

In fixed use, as in the protection of borders and checkpoint, Black Shadow guarantees reactivity according to its mission plan: it concentrates on risky signals with a constant listening and analysis of the signals. A smart reactive jammer that focus on unfriendly signals with a constant listening and analysis of signals that also face penitentiary institution needs to protect the  infrastructure from unfriendly signals.
Black Shadow for convoy protection

Black Shadow for convoy protection

Designed for fixed or embedded use, Black Shadow is the Avantix high-power jamming system. With its smart reactive jammer system, Black Shadow responds instantly to un-friendly signals. Enables convoy protection with high BTS jamming capacity in rural and urban areas, with a high-density of communication. Moreover, Avantix Black Shadow can equip itself with additional booster dedicated to GSM bands to ensure the optimum protection. With strong capabilities of adaptation, Black Shadow fits in various kinds of vehicles for VIP convoy protection.
