Elbit subsidiary to make Bradley fire control components

1st September 2020 - 09:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems of America is to provide the US Army with gunner hand stations, commander hand stations and circuit cards for the Bradley IFV, under a five-year contract worth up to $79 million.

‘An initial purchase order of $26 million under the ID/IQ [indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract, followed by a second purchase order of $12 million, have been issued to be executed over a three-year period,’ the company noted in a 31 August statement.

The Defense Logistics Agency awarded the contract to the US subsidiary of Israel-based Elbit Systems.

In the initial order, Elbit Systems of America plans production of the Bradley components until 2024.

Gunner hand stations allow soldiers to target and fire accurately, working with the commander hand stations that are used to drive the vehicle’s turret and initiate control signals to the turret fire control systems.

The circuit cards provide processing and power supply to the hand station units, which will replace damaged equipment from active units.
