The C295’s airborne early warning (AEW) version is equipped with the IAI/ELTA fourth-generation active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar and integrated IFF as the primary sensor.


This sensor is housed in a six-metre (20-ft.) rotodome, enabling the aircraft to provide high-quality 360 deg. surveillance, creating a real-time integrated air and maritime situation picture and electronic order of battle. The AEW situation picture is shared with friendly forces via network-centric data links.
