Elbit Systems has received an $85 million contract from the Israeli Ministry of Defense to supply electronic warfare (EW) suites for the Israeli Navy Sa'ar 6-class corvettes.

Under the ten year contract the company will supply combat proven digital receivers, signal processing technologies and analysis tools. All systems have open system architecture, enabling effective operational capabilities while maintaining flexibility to cope with both current and future threats.

The new class of corvettes will be tasked with the protection of Israel's Economic Exclusion Zone.

Edgar Maimon, executive vice president and general manager of Elbit Systems EW and SIGINT - Elisra, said: ‘We are proud to continue to be the EW house of the Israeli Navy and to have been awarded this contract to equip the new corvettes with the sophisticated EW capabilities necessary to perform a variety of complex missions while maintaining maximal level of force protection.

‘The increasing demand for our EW solutions is a clear indication for the growing operational importance of advanced and combat proven EW capabilities in all domains of operational engagement - maritime, land and air.’
