Elbit announced today that its subsidiary in Germany, Elbit Systems Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, was awarded a follow-on contract worth about $23 million by the Swedish Defence Material Administration to supply additional software defined radios for the Swedish Armed Forces. The contract will be performed over a period of 30 months.
Following orders received since 2016 from the Swedish Defence Material Administration, Elbit Systems will now supply additional E-LynX SDR vehicular dual channel configurations, as well as vehicular configurations in full duplex multi-channel technology, as part of Sweden’s tactical radio upgrade program.
Haim Delmar, General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber, said "We appreciate the trust placed in our digital communication capabilities by the Swedish Armed Forces, attesting to the technological quality and credibility of our solution. Sweden is an important market for Elbit Systems, and we hope to continue in growing our activities in Sweden."
Elbit also announced that in another deal, its U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was recently awarded two orders with an aggregate value of approximately $29 million by the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier under an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contract issued in 2020.
Under the orders, Elbit Systems of America will upgrade the U.S. Army active duty and National Guard rotary-wing aviation units' AN/AVS-6 Aviator's Night Vision Imaging Systems (ANVIS) with high performance white phosphor image intensifier tubes.
The night vision upgrade to the U.S. Army fleet’s legacy ANVIS goggles will replace the existing green image intensification. White phosphor enhances the ANVIS goggles as it new image intensification tubes will also provide better contrast, along with high image resolution at greater distances for pilots.
Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said "U.S. Army pilots can successfully achieve their mission and fly with confidence in any light conditions. Upgrading the U.S. Army aviation fleet’s goggles to high performance white phosphor provides improved clarity. Whether soldiers are on the ground or in the air, our team is committed to providing advanced capabilities to the U.S. Army to suit their evolving night vision needs."
