BENELUX to get Smart Vests

3rd July 2015 - 15:33 GMT | by Grant Turnbull in London


Elbit Systems will provide a Smart Vest system to the BENELUX countries for their soldier modernisation programmes.

Under a €150 million contract signed on 1 July, Elbit will deliver an as-yet unnamed product to meet the Smart Vest requirement over a five-year period.

The product from Elbit is likely to be based on their Dominator system that includes the Tadiran PNR-1000A software-defined radio as well as the company’s Raptor all-in-one wearable computing unit, which features a 4.3inch display and can integrate into C2 networks. 

Dutch MoD spokesman Arvid Staarink told Shephard that the Netherlands want a Smart Vest system for their VOSS (Verbeterd Operationeel Soldaat Systeem)
