Elbit Systems passes acceptance tests for Hellenic Coast Guard
Elbit Systems has announced its successful completion of the acceptance tests for new patrol vessels of the Hellenic Coast Guard (HCG).
The company was awarded a contract from Cantiere Navale Vittoria SpA in 2019 to supply combat suites and perform systems’ integration for the HCG.
The tests were conducted in the Aegean maritime arena. It included integration level tests of the combat systems and subsystems onboard the vessel as well as live firing tests from the onboard remote-controlled weapon stations.
Elbit Systems supplied and integrated a number of systems including Spectro XR Electro-Optical payloads, radars and remote-control weapon stations. These systems were provided full integration into C2 software.
The combat suite is designed to support future ‘plug and play' integration of aerial and surface unmanned systems that will enable expansion of the operational envelope of the patrol vessels far beyond their line of sight.
Elbit’s broad portfolio of maritime capabilities ranging from EW, sonars, EO, CMS to autonomous platforms and weapon systems enable the company to provide navies with enhanced situational awareness and deterrence capabilities.
