ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel, 6 Dec. 2005. BVR Systems Ltd. announced today the award of a contract for the provision of its In-Flight Electronic Warfare Simulator -- IFEWS -- product for the Israel Air Force (IAF).

The contract includes the installation of the IFEWS system on-board the CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter and the C-130 Hercules aircraft. BVR will provide airborne units and ground stations that compose a comprehensive training package for this state-of-the-art training system.

The IFEWS system is an autonomous, on-board threat-environment training suite. The system is an airborne, rangeless, embedded simulator for the training and debriefing of Electronic Warfare (EW) scenarios.

IFEWS simulates the aircraft EW systems, during flight, thus providing a software-based virtual EW range, and saving millions of dollars otherwise spent on the operations of expensive emitters. IFEWS provides the ability to define realistic threat entities, create true-to-life EW training scenarios, perform the training flight anywhere with no dependency on a ground instrumentation range, and debrief the exercise post-flight.

"This program is extremely important to us, as it is an important milestone in our road map for the embedded simulation market and the implementation of our new business strategy. We are very proud to be providing the IAF with this advanced system, particularly as the prototype system was designed with the cooperation of the IAF, and now the first production systems will be provided to the IAF. This contract proves BVR's position as a provider of high quality and advanced embedded training solutions," said BVR Systems' CEO, Ilan Gillies.

In addition to BVR's Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVA) product, which showcased at the recent Paris airshow on-board the M-346 lead in fighter trainer aircraft, the IFEWS system highlights BVR's focus on this new area of embedded training systems for airborne platforms.

BVR Systems is a world leader in advanced defense training and simulation systems. The company offers highly efficient, cost-effective solutions to the simulation, training and debriefing needs of modern air, sea and ground forces. For more information, see www.bvrsystems.com.
