Protection Systems.

TELEFUNKEN RACOMS offers an extensive range of highly developed warning systems for vehicles. With precise warnings tailored to the specific requirements of the operating personnel, the systems enable an effective and timely response to laser and radar-based threats. The warning systems provide 360-degree threat coverage and can be integrated with a wide range of countermeasures. Innovative high-speed processing and communication capabilities combined with electro-optical operation ensure accurate and reliable protection. Furthermore, the systems are immune to false alarms caused by reflections, lightning, gunfire, as well as autonomous RF and electro-optical operations. The warning systems are field-tested and are used by numerous armed forces worldwide (NATO and others).

Warning systems for wheeled and tracked vehicles.


Enhanced Laser Warning System for wheeled and tracked vehicles.

​ELAWS (Enhanced Laser Warning System) detects and classifies laser threats of various types and displays the angle of incidence and the type of threat.The 360° system ensures reliable laser detection regardless of the size, type and shape of the platform to be protected. The ELAWS is also designed to exchange information with other onboard systems such as navigation systems, countermeasure equipment and other subsystems.

  • The system detects all relevant laser threats, including laser rangefinder, laser target markers, laser beam riders
  • Threat detection coverage: 360° horizontal, 110° vertical FOV
  • Detection accuracy up to 1°
  • Direction indication for all types of threats
  • Acoustic and visual warning signals
  • High probability of detection
  • MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-1275(AT), MIL-STD-461 Standards
  • Spectral range: 0.5 to 1.6 micron
  • Built-in test
  • Low false alarm rate
  • Easy installation
  • High/Wide dynamic range

The Laser Warning System (E-LAWS) and the Threat Detection System (TDS) of TELEFUNKEN RACOMS are capable of detecting, categorizing and localizing laser sources such as rangefinders, target markers, guidance beams, infrared illuminators and training aircraft. In addition to laser sources, the Multi Threat Detection System (MTDS) also detects, categorizes and localizes radar/high frequency sources. All systems have a built-in self-test and allow training directly in the vehicle.


Active Protection Systems against Anti-Tank threats.

The Active Protection Systems of the Iron Fist series provide powerful protection from Anti-Tank weapons and improve the survivability of vehicle platforms and their crew. The system includes individual configurations for light and heavy armored vehicles.

Iron Fist offers autonomous sensor-based detection, identification, classification and reaction to hostile threats without injuring the crew or damaging the vehicle in the process.

Iron Fist uses a reactive system to neutralize incoming projectiles.
