Military and Security


ERA provides the most advanced technology for today's air defense, security and military range operations.  

ERA's passive surveillance technology provides an unmatched ability to "see without being seen" and has a long heritage of innovation for leading defense and security forces around the world. Two of these important technologies are Passive Emitter Tracking (PET) and Passive Coherent Location (PCL).

ERA’s PET technology, VERA-NG by ERA, is a mature technology deployed in Asia, Europe and the Americas, which tracks aircraft, vehicles, and other targets based on passive tracking of emissions, including radars, jammers, IFF transponders, DME/TACAN interrogators, Datalink and other communication, navigation and surveillance systems. Since beginning, ERA has invested heavily in the next PET technology and has participated in various demonstrations of the technology for NATO applications.

One of the most promising technologies that could alter the field of air surveillance is the Passive Coherent Location (PCL) system. For targets that do not emit signals, ERA’s next PCL system shall track and classify targets using reflections of existing third-party emitters such as FM radio.

As the importance of air defense and military ATC has increased for leading military forces, the importance of effective airbase and range management for training and combat missions has likewise received increased attention. ERA solutions provide accurate surveillance for challenging terrain and extreme climates. Multi-sensor surveillance system by ERA provides mobile and fixed-range management solutions for the world's leading defense organizations.


Air defense and passive surveillance are critical elements of today’s military and security operations. VERA-NG by ERA addresses this by providing the most advanced and state-of-the-art Passive Surveillance System designed for detection, location, identification and tracking of air, ground and naval targets. The Vera heritage and worldwide reputation as a powerful surveillance solution extends over many decades with systems successfully deployed in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

VERA-NG by ERA is a deployable air command and control system component (DAC) and processes radars, jammers, SSR/IFF transponders, TACAN/DME interrogators, DataLinks and other onboard emitters. 

The system is a proven Passive ESM Tracker (PET) that utilizes well-proven Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) multilateration techniques to triangulate on a broad range of emissions.

VERA-NG by ERA offers a covert, electronic and physical, surveillance capability that is not vulnerable to anti-radar weapon systems. The system’s design is fully mobile and can be delivered in a “roll-on/roll-off” configuration, ensuring its readiness for rapid tactical deployment. 

VERA-NG by ERA uses advanced finger-printing techniques to identify targets without the need for ground-based transmissions. VERA-NG by ERA can also be configured to fulfil missions that require passive 3D radar with extremely high capacity for simultaneous target tracking.

Pardubice, September 24th – 26th, 2015 ERA´s hometown Pardubice has been for years Czech „Sillicon Valley“ where many electro-technical companies and schools have their seats. The first year of international exhibition Electrotechnics & IT, held in regional exhibition centre IDEON, was another opportunity to prove such heritage sending a message to general public. ERA took part in the event presenting itself as progressive and desirable employer for young generation.

Ostrava, September 21st, 2015 ERA Company exhibited its passive surveillance and reconnaissance system VERA-NG at the biggest security show in Europe - NATO Days & Czech Air Force Days at Leos Janacek Airport in Ostrava. This year ERA also became one of the main marketing partners of the event, which aim was to present the wide spectrum of the resources and the capabilities of the Czech Republic and its allies in the field of security provision to the general public. The partakers from 16 countries presented their up-to-date technologies to 225 thousands of visitors.

London, September 18th, 2015 ERA has attended DSEI, the World leading Defence & Security Event, held at London ExCeL exhibition center in London. ERA presented its passive surveillance system VERA-NG, and has been awarded prestigious price “Silver DSEI 2015” in the nomenclature of Passive Surveillance System. The evaluation team comprises of international journalist jury and such prize award was organized with a help of Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic.

Pardubice, September 15, 2015 The Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic has certified that ERA's transmitter SQUID has been approved for use in military aviation within the Technical Specifications accepted by the Ministry. ERA obtained the certificate after a one year long process of studying the valid documentation and it remains in effect until surrendered by the applicant or revoked by the Ministry. 

Pardubice, September 9th, 2015 ERA has signed a partnership contract with the Svítání Elementary and Practical Education School. ERA has become a partner to this institution which provides an education to children with special needs or certain handicaps. In connection with its corporate responsibility program, ERA subsidizes its projects and a number of major events.
