Israel's Elbit Systems announced on April 16 that it was awarded a contract valued at approximately $15 million from the Swiss Federal Office for Defense Procurement to provide Command and Control (C2) systems for the Tactical Reconnaissance System of the Swiss Armed Forces. The contract will be performed over a three-year period.

Under the contract, Elbit will provide the reconnaissance battalions and forward observers of the Swiss Army with C2 systems that improve target acquisition, prioritizing and data dissemination capabilities and will enable the generation of a common operational picture, thereby facilitating rapid decision making and effective engagement.

The C2 systems are to be installed in Mowag Eagle V 6x6 armored vehicles.
