Elbit Systems has won a $78 million contract from a European country to supply an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)-based advanced intelligence solution.
The contract will be performed over a two-year period by Elbit Systems’ ISTAR Division, established several months ago, as a result of combining Elbit Systems’ Electro-optics – Elop and UAS Divisions, the company announced Sunday.
Elbit Systems’ solution will consist, among other elements, of AMPS (Advanced Multi-Sensor Payload System) - a multi-sensor electro-optics system capable of long-range visual intelligence for both day and night.
The system is adaptable for a large variety of airborne applications and serves as an important building block for the integrated intelligence solution.
“I believe that our systematic capabilities, that enable an optimal integration between UAS and our intelligence systems, will enhance our position as a world leader in ISTAR activities resulting in further achievements in the international market”. Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division said.
