Elbit Systems Wins UAS Contract from European Country

Elbit Systems has won a contract from an undisclosed European country to supply an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)-based cutting-edge intelligence solution.

Valued at approximately US$78 million, the contract will be performed over a two-year period by Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, established several months ago, as a result of combining Elbit Systems Electro-optics Elop and UAS Divisions.

The UAS solution will consist, among other elements, of AMPS (Advanced Multi-Sensor Payload System) - a multi-sensor electro-optics system capable of long-range visual intelligence for both day and night.

The system is adaptable for a large variety of airborne applications.

Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, said, We are proud of this contract award to supply a solution that answers the current and future requirements of the high level intelligence systems market. We develop and tailor end-to-end solutions that meet the demands and specific expectations of our customers. I believe that our systematic capabilities, that enable an optimal integration between UAS and our intelligence systems, will enhance our position as a world leader in ISTAR activities resulting in further achievements in the international market.
