Israel orders advanced radio systems
Elbit Systems has won a contract to supply radio systems to the Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD), the company announced on 22 March.
Under the contract, worth $100 million, Elbit Systems will provide the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) with hand held, vehicle mounted and airborne third-generation software defined radios that enable advanced network services at a high security level.
Elbit Systems will manufacture and supply hundreds of the radio systems over a period of five years. The company also expects to receive additional orders to provide repair and maintenance services for 15 years.
Bezhalel Machlis, president and CEO of Elbit Systems, said: 'We have many years of experience in managing outsourcing projects in Israel and abroad, in radio communications as well as other military fields, and I am confident this experience will enable us to provide the Israeli MoD with a top quality highly operational solution for a cost effective price.'
