By Arie Egozi

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) signed a contract with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to provide its ADA system for the Light Armed Helicopter (LAH) programme. Under the contract, IAI will supply its ADA system, a GPS Anti-Jamming solution capable of suppressing interferences from multiple jammers from various directions, for serial installation on LAH platforms.


In 2017, IAI’s ADA system was selected by the Defence Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to be installed on various platforms of the Republic of Korea Air Force, Navy, and Army. The contract included system installation, testing, and airworthiness certification for both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. As part of the LAH program, KAI successfully conducted the integration of the ADA system on LAH prototypes.




The ADA system can be easily integrated with existing navigation solutions of airborne, surface, and maritime platforms, as well as guided munitions. It operates simultaneously in L1 and L2 bands, supports C/A and P(Y) signals, and has provisions for M-code waveform.



IAI has over 20 years of proven experience in supplying top-tier GNSS anti-jamming solutions for the most challenging requirements. IAI’s ADA system is a mature, battle-proven, and certified system, effective against all forms of jamming and allowing continuous operation under challenging environments. The system’s performance was intensively tested by various customers worldwide in operational scenarios with multiple jammers, demonstrating exceptional performance.
