Elbit Systems wins artillery and radio systems contracts
Elbit Systems is to provide a country in the Far East with defence systems under two separate contracts announced on 14 October. The contracts, worth a combined $50 million, have been issued by a undisclosed country.
The first contract, worth $30 million, will see Elbit Systems supply the country’s artillery corps the ATMOS autonomous artillery system. The system, mounted on various wheeled platforms, enhances mission flexibility, reaction speed and survivability of both the crew and the system. It will be delivered within the next three years.
The second contract, worth $20 million, is for personal radio systems, which Elbit Systems will supply to the nation’s armed forces within the next 12 months.
