Elbit Systems announced last week that its U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was awarded an approximately $35 million five-year, firm-fixed-priced contract by the U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command for repair of line-replaceable units in support of the V-22 aircraft. 

The repairs will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas and Talladega, Alabama, and the contract will be performed until October 2025, the company said.

A line-replaceable unit is a piece of hardware that can be replaced in a relatively short time by opening and closing connectors or fasteners.
