29th March 2017 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed a $200 million contract with an unnamed Asian air force customer to provide targeting and surveillance pods, the company announced on 28 March.

The contract, which will be carried out by IAI subsidiary Elta Systems, is a follow-up order for the new generation of targeting and surveillance pods already used by the country's air force.

Joseph Weiss, president and CEO, IAI, said: 'The new order serves as yet another evidence of the satisfaction and trust our clients place in the IAI's systems and technological capabilities. IAI has many-year experience in designing and manufacturing airborne warfare systems, which play a central role in the operations of several air forces around the globe.

'Being able to provide airborne tactical and strategic intelligence in real time allows our clients to deal with current and future operational challenges in the best way possible. This is a very important deal for us and one we are proud to have been chosen for. It constitutes a strong pillar in our relationship with this client.'
