Israel's Elbit Systems announced Wednesday that it was awarded an approximately $24 million contract from the Dutch Ministry of Defence to supply the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) with new vehicular tactical computers. The contract will be performed over a 30-month period.

Elbit is to equip various vehicular platforms with its seventh-generation Enhanced Tactical Computer (ETC) MK7, replacing legacy ETCs that were provided by the company to the RNLA over a decade ago. The new ETCs provide enhanced and more robust command and control (C2) and tactical data processing capabilities, improved security for processing and storage of secured mission information, as well as solid growth path for advanced C2 applications, Elbit said. 

Haim Delmar, General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber, said "We are pleased with our continuous involvement in digitization programs of the RNLA. We see the Netherlands as a key market for Elbit Systems and intend to continue our partnership with the Dutch MOD and strengthen our local industrial cooperation and investment."
