Israel Aerospace Secures Contract for ADA System in S.Korea's LAH 2nd Phase Production
Israel Aerospace Industries Awarded Contract to Provide ADA (GPS Anti-Jamming System) for Second Phase of LAH Production in the Republic of Korea

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has entered into a contract with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to supply its Adaptive Defense Antenna (ADA) system for the Light Armed Helicopter (LAH) 2nd Phase Production in the Republic of Korea.

The agreement was announced during the Seoul ADEX 2023 exhibition.

Under the terms of the contract, IAI will provide the 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, the ADA system was selected by the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to be installed on various platforms of the Republic of Korea Air Force, Navy, and Army. The previous contract included system installation, testing, and airworthiness certification for both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. As part of the LAH program, KAI successfully integrated the ADA system on LAH prototypes.

The ADA system can be 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.

The system is purportedly effective against all forms of jamming and allows continuous operation under challenging environments.
