Advanced Multifunction Integrated Systems (MFR+EW)

1- Generalities

AMIS Advanced Multifunction Integrated Systems (MFR+EW) is a “Super-Integrated System” composed of one Multi Function Radar (MFR), one advanced digital ESM and one advanced digital ECM sub-systems.
The great advantage of AMIS is the fact that the overall performances are much better of the performances provided by each individual sub-system. In fact, many of the high performances functions are achieved by exploiting functions of the other sub-systems. Beside the high performances, a great saving of hardware is also achieved, obtaining, as a result, a more reliable system already conceived to operate successfully in an Integrated Ship’s Mast. The AMIS architecture allows to save a lot of on board integration effort and will allow a significant save in the logistic support.
AMIS exploits an X Wide Band MFR (called MFR 10X), composed of 4 fixed AESA (Active Electronically Steering Antenna) faces working in the X RF Wide Band.

3 - AMIS Architecture and C omposition

➢ X Wide Band AESA (8-12 GHz)
➢ AMU (AMIS Manager Unit ):
▪ Programmable Radar Functions
▪ ESM processing
▪ ECM jamming signals
▪ Integrated Functions
▪ Interface Combat Mgt Sys (CMS)
➢ ESM Array:
▪ 2-18 GHz pre amplified ESM antennas array
▪ 0.5 -2 GHz ESM antennas array (option)
➢ ECM Arrays - Low Band and High Band: these are small wide band AESA antennas for the jamming signals amplification and transmission in the right direction with the necessary ERP. Frequency coverage: 2 to 18 GHz.
