 Elbit Systems Ltd. announced earlier this week that it was awarded a $80 million contract to supply Direct Infrared Counter Measures (“DIRCM”) and airborne Electronic Warfare (“EW”) systems for a country in Asia-Pacific. The contract will be performed over a two-year period.

Under the contract, Elbit Systems will provide C-MUSIC™ DIRCM systems together with the Company’s Infra-Red-based Passive Airborne Warning Systems (IR-PAWS), for several aircraft types, providing high levels of protection and redundancy.

These systems have accumulated hundreds of thousands of flight hours to date, and have been selected by numerous customers to equip more than 25 types of aircraft. Customers include Israel, Germany, NATO’s multinational fleet and others.

 “The rising threat that aircraft face from shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles increases the demand for certified and operationally proven self-protection systems,” Oren Sabag, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR & EW, commented. “Our capability to provide a complete and tested solution well positions us to address this growing need.

This deal is another in a streak of major international agreements signed over the past week alone, cumulatively worth close to $1 billion.

In late July, Elbit was was awarded an approximately $70 million contract to supply an EW solution to an international customer over a 2.5 year period. Two days later, the company announced it was awarded an approximately $220 million contract to supply precision guidance kits for airborne munitions to a country in Asia-Pacific.

On July 30th, Elbit announced a contract valued at $548 million to supply military-wide multi-domain combat networked warfare capabilities to the Armed Forces of a country in Asia-Pacific.
