Elbit Systems wins African cyber contract
Elbit Systems will supply its Wise Intelligence Technology (WiT) system to an unnamed country in Africa under a new $40 million contract announced on 24 April.
The WiT system provides intelligence analysis for cyber defence for its customers. The end-to-end solution supports every stage of the intelligence process, including the collection of the data from multiple sources, databases and sensors, processing of the information, supporting intelligence personnel in the analysis and evaluation of the information and disseminating the intelligence to the intended recipient.
The WiT system to be delivered will be integrated with various data sources, including Elbit Systems' Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) solution and Elbit Systems' PC Surveillance Systems (PSS), an advance solution for covert intelligence gathering.
Yehuda (Udi) Vered, general manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I, said: ‘We are proud to be selected to supply this unique system, which is already field-proven, fully operational and customisable. Elbit Systems is a world leader in the fields of intelligence analysis and cyber defense, with proven solutions highly suitable for countries, armies and critical infrastructure sites. We hope that additional customers will follow in selecting our highly advanced and cutting edge systems in these fields as their preferred solution.’
Elbit Systems said the system will be supplied within two years. No further details on the customer were given.
