Elbit wins Asia-Pacific ISTAR contract

31st March 2017 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems will supply its Condor 2 electro-optic (EO) airborne system to an unnamed customer in the Asia-Pacific region. The company announced the four-year $82 million follow-on contract on 29 March.

The equipment will be supplied in cooperation with Elta Systems for use in intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. Elta is also to supply additional content to the customer.

Elad Aharonson, general manager, Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, said: 'Our ISTAR systems and solutions enable customers to carry out effective and flexible ISTAR operations. We see a strong and growing global demand for ISTAR solutions and believe that other customers will follow this Asia-Pacific customer and select our systems for their needs.'

Condor 2 is an EO/long range oblique photography (LOROP) system that provides simultaneous high-resolution visible and IR reconnaissance images at very long stand-off distances. The system consists of the pod itself, a wide-band data link, fixed and transportable image exploitation stations and support equipment.
