Innovation, solutions & unique laser technologies
ARIEL Photonics Assembly Ltd.
ARIEL Photonics Assembly Ltd. was founded to develop unique laser solutions & technologies, leading innovation in the future battlefield.
ARIEL is engaged with most Israeli major defense integrators, and has developed a laser module to deflect anti-tank guided missiles, as well as laser countermeasure solutions, laser illuminators and threat simulators for both terrestrial and avionic applications.
A leader in defense solutions
ARIEL has developed laser solutions for systems that protect Israel from land, sea & aerial terrorist attacks. Amongst these is the CLOUD system that deflects anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), protecting tanks, personnel carriers, jeeps, bridges, posts, important military installations and ships. This module was extensively tested in both Israel and USA, consistently demonstrating a 100% success rate.
In addition, ARIEL has developed & produced 10 unique laser solutions for various defense applications, including:
- Laser countermeasures
- Laser illuminators
- Laser threat simulators
- Laser solutions for terrestrial, marine & avionic applications
- LADAR for autonomous vehicles
In 2011, ELBIT Systems Land & C4I invested in ARIEL, further strengthening the business relationship and creating a strategic partnership, thus becoming minority share-holders.
The roadmap of ARIEL includes additional anti-drone solutions, specifically Laser Kill Anti UAV protection systems, to defend against terrorist drone attacks.
Preliminary field experiments have successfully demonstrated protection from quadcopters. This solution is based on a high-power multi kilowatt fiber laser developed by ARIEL.
Currently a production order from Homeland Security is pending and is expected to be approved in the next 2-3 years.
ARIEL is seeking collaborations with civil and homeland security companies for development and manufacturing of cutting-edge laser-based solutions for defense.
ARIEL’s team is composed of the top talent in the fields of electro-optics, mechanics, electronics & programming.
Having a small team allows ARIEL to be versatile, fast, and provide custom, tailored solutions for defense projects.
Our unique laser technologies are protected by 2 patents (granted) and several other pending patents.
ARIEL is ISO-9001 certified as well as a certified supplier to RAFAEL, ELBIT, ELTA, IMI & Israel MOD.
Our mission is to provide laser technologies & solutions for defense applications, driving innovation & cutting edge defense projects.
