Elbit Systems details new contracts
Elbit Systems will supply thermal imaging observation systems to an unnamed European country under contracts worth a combined $30 million announced on 20 July.
Systems to be supplied by the company include the Long View CR observation systems – dismounted soldier long-range observation systems designed for target acquisition with day and night capabilities; LOROSS systems - fixed installation long-range observation systems; and XACT observation systems for dismounted soldier applications.
Elbit said the systems will be deployed by the customer to serve all army command levels, from the dismounted soldier to the headquarters command.
Elad Aharonson, general manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR division, said: ‘Observation systems are a vital component of the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) field. They enable day and night operations under all weather conditions. We are proud to have won these contracts, reaffirming Elbit Systems' position as one of the leading providers of advanced ISR solutions, which are highly adaptable to the needs of the contemporary battlefield.’
Delivery will take place over a one-year period.
