Elbit Systems has been awarded a contract estimated US$30 million by the Department of Defence of the Commonwealth of Australia, for the supply of XACTth65 sights, a thermal weapon sight product.
The XACTth65 sight is very small size, light weight (only 450 grams) and its full tactical and high performance during day and night operations. The contract, which is a part of project Land 125 phase 3c, will be performed over a two-year period.

Machlis added: "As the prime systems integrator for the Battle Management System, we hope to integrate the new thermal weapon sight into the C4I system and we hope we can supply even more ISTAR capabilities that will be implemented in the system".
