IAI implements port protection system in Asian country

Israel Aerospace Systems has completed the deployment of its ELI 3320 Port Guard coastal and offshore critical infrastructure protection system at an Asian port, sources close to the deal told ‘Globes’. Port Guard monitors what is happening in all parts of the port in all weather conditions and provides local authorities with the necessary information for any immediate response.







Port Guard’s open architecture allows the installation of IAI’s sensors, systems and platforms alongside solutions developed by other companies. In this way, the system can be adapted for all seaports worldwide in terms of geographical conditions and threats.

Port Guard is operated by sensors deployed on land, in the air and underwater, all of which transmit information to the command and control system. A major advantage of the system is that it not only streams all the data but also analyzes it for intelligence purposes through a system devised by IAI’s ELTA unit.

IAI did not reveal the name of the Asian country using the system, but the company’s financial figures illustrate how important the Asian market is to the Israeli company. In 2023, 36.2% of sales came from Asia, 28.8% from Israel, 18% from North America and 12.4% from Europe with the rest from Latin America, Africa and Australasia.

Between 2019 and 2023, India (37%), the Philippines (12%) and the US (8.7%) were the largest customers for all Israeli defense exports.

IAI ELTA Acting President Israel Lupa said: “We are proud to have once again been chosen as a key supplier for the critical task of protecting ports. I am confident that Port Guard with its flexible architecture will achieve maximum performance and will continue to provide value.”
