Elbit Systems has received a contract from the Israeli Ministry of Defense to provide satellite-on-the-move (SOTM) systems for use by the Israeli Defense Forces, the company announced on 8 May.

The contract will be performed over a two-year period.

The company will supply its ELSAT 2100 SOTM systems. These terminals enable high data rate broadband capabilities for the land vehicles on the move. The small footprint systems can be installed on different platforms, providing seamless communication even in difficult terrain with its advanced tracking capabilities. This solution allows on-the-move data communication anywhere, anytime, using various communication satellites.

Yehuda (Udi) Vered, general manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I Division, said: 'The SOTM contract is an important milestone in our military communication activity on the whole and in the satellite communication activity in particular.

'The Israeli Defense Forces is an innovative technologically advanced military, and I trust that additional customers will follow and select our systems. The modern battlefield requires very reliable capabilities of high rate data transfer anytime, anywhere, and our SOTM communication solution meets this requirement.'
