Elbit Systems launches CONDOR MS system for stand-off intel gathering

Elbit Systems has successfully launched the CONDOR MS, a new long-range oblique photography (LOROP) system that introduces multi-spectral (MS) sensing capability and artificial intelligence analytics to stand-off strategic intelligence gathering missions.

CONDOR MS integrates three high resolution electro-optic sensors into the company’s certified and widely operational CONDOR2 system: visible and near infrared, medium-wave infrared, and short-wave infrared.


The unique combination of multi-spectral sensing, high level of stabilisation and auto image enhancement enables the new system to dramatically extend coverage area in day, night and adverse weather conditions, thereby improving the strategic reconnaissance output while increasing the survivability of the platforms.

Deep learning algorithms and precise geo-location enable the CONDOR MS to identify a large number of targets at extremely high rates, hence significantly shortening the time frame needed to close sensor-to-shooter loops. 

Over the last two decades, Elbit Systems has been the prime contractor in numerous LOROP programs based on the CONDOR family of systems, which features one of the smallest and lightest pods in the category. The CONDOR family of systems is integrated onboard a variety of platforms, among them the F-16 A/B/C/D/I, F-4, SU-30 and B-737. 

Elbit Systems is an international high technology company engaged in a wide range of defence, homeland security and commercial programs throughout the world. The company, which includes Elbit Systems and its subsidiaries, operates in the areas of aerospace, land and naval systems; command, control, communications, computers, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR); unmanned aircraft systems; advanced electro-optics; electro-optic space systems; EW suites; signal intelligence systems; data links and communications systems; radios and cyber-based systems; and munitions.

Elbit Systems also focuses on the upgrading of existing platforms, developing new technologies for defence, homeland security and commercial applications and providing a range of support services, including training and simulation systems.
