Elbit Systems: successful sea trials of DESEAVER MK-4

By Arie Egozi

The Israeli Navy and Elbit Systems have successfully completed a series of sea trials for the DESEAVER MK-4 Counter Measure Dispensing System (CMDS).

The trials tested the capability of the new maritime Electronic Warfare (EW) system to effectively respond to complex missile attack scenarios, including launching decoy rounds from several launchers against multiple concurrent threats.

The DESEAVER MK-4 is the fourth generation of EW dispensing systems, designed to provide full-effect soft kill anti-missile defense capabilities as part of Elbit Systems’ Integrated Electronic Warfare Suite (IEWS). Elbit Systems’ IEWS is currently operational across the Israeli Navy and additional international Naval Forces.

The DESEAVER MK-4 system offers perimeter protection against concurrent multiple missile threats from various directions. The system consists of several trainable and stabilized launchers capable of rapidly and accurately placing and launching decoys selected by the anti-missile algorithms. The system employs a range of passive and active decoys.

Similar to its predecessors, the fourth generation of the DESEAVER system is fully integrated with other ship combat systems.

Oren Sabag, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR & EW, stated, “We are proud of our ongoing cooperation with and support of the Israeli Navy. The successful completion of these trials provides further proof of the reliability of our technology and the advanced protection capabilities they provide against new and evolving threats.”
