Defense giant Elbit systems was awarded an approximately $78 million contract, it announced Sunday, for the supply of an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)-based intelligence solution to a European country.
The contact will be performed over a two-year period using cutting-edge technology from Elbit Systems' ISTAR Division.
Elbit Systems' solution will utilize 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 and is an important building block for the integrated intelligence solution.
“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," Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, stated.
"We develop and tailor end-to-end solutions that meet the demands and specific expectations of our customers," he added.
"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”.
