HAIFA, Israel --- Rafael Armament Development Authority Ltd. reveals a new member in its SpotLite Family of electro-optic enemy fire detection systems. The SpotLite-M joins the SpotLite-P (previously SpotLite Mk 2) as the mobile version of the well-known system that is capable of accurately and immediately detecting, locating and thereby enabling reaction to enemy fire sources, such as small arms fire, RPGs and anti-tank missiles.

The inability to accurately locate enemy fire causes many casualties, ineffective and excessive firing and most importantly, keeps the initiative on the battlefield in the hands of the enemy.

The SpotLite-M solves this problem by precisely detecting and locating the shooting enemy in real-time while on the move. Within seconds, the vehicle under fire can react to the threat by using a remote controlled weapon station, changing positions, releasing a smoke screen or other countermeasures. Simultaneously, coordinates of the firing source can be sent to any shooter capable of receiving those coordinates, whether it be a tank, attack helicopter, anti-tank missile, sniper, etc.

The heart of the system is comprised of advanced image processing capabilities with a sophisticated camera developed by Rafael which enables target detection and location at more than the effective range of the various threats. SpotLite-M allows quick and accurate threat detection during the day and at night with up to 360° coverage. In addition to land platforms, the SpotLite-M is also suitable for aerial and naval platforms.

"The SpotLite-M provides the best solution for one of the most serious problems for mobile platforms on any battlefield and that, is finding the enemy and being able to react in real-time," says David Stemer Corporate VP
and General Manager of Rafael's Missile Division. "We are confident that it will attract the attention of our customers worldwide."

The project is being funded by several customers and the installation of a prototype onto a vehicle is Rafael's next major milestone to be completed by the end of 2007.

RAFAEL designs, develops, manufactures and supplies a wide range of advanced defense systems. These leading edge products include naval, air and ground precision weapons, electro-optic systems, electronic warfare (EW) systems, C4I and unmanned systems, acoustic defense systems, armored protection and training systems.
