Elbit Systems of America to Exhibit Advanced Homeland Security Solutions at AFCEA Homeland Security Conference

FORT WORTH, Texas, February 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Border protection and emergency response preparedness are critical components of our nation's homeland security. The 2012 AFCEA Homeland Security Conference is an opportunity for companies to present proven homeland security solutions.  Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., is there to highlight its capabilities in border security and training/exercise and simulation.

During the event, held February 28-29 at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in Washington, DC, Elbit Systems of America will feature its tower-based border security solution which is based on field-proven command and control architecture, used for more than a decade, securing the world's most challenging borders. Elbit Systems of America's open system architecture allows for the integration of a variety of sensors to provide a solution that enhances border patrol agents' ability to detect, track, identify, and classify items of interest.  The open system facilitates integration with unattended ground sensors, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), unmanned ground vehicles, and unmanned surface vehicles for future growth.

Elbit Systems of America also provides comprehensive, interactive training and exercise simulations for emergency management and first responder personnel. Currently, these teams are trained using either table top exercises, which are limited in realism, or live exercises, which are costly. The Elbit Systems of America Homeland Security Simulation System strikes the effective balance between these two approaches, providing a high fidelity environment where participants are placed in a highly realistic simulation of their urban environment, with scenarios generated by Department of Homeland Security validated models. Throughout exercises participants respond to emergency situations by realistically collaborating and interacting through simulated command, control and communications systems. Scenarios can be adjusted in real time to create additional challenges, and all activity is recorded for comprehensive after action debriefing.

Homeland security is a national priority; providing innovative solutions is Elbit Systems of America's priority.
