Elbit Systems was awarded a $33 million three-year period contract to supply its advanced Digital CoMPASS electro-optical (EP) payload systems to be installed onboard Helicopters.
Adi Dar, General Manager of Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop, commented: "This important follow on program reflects the customer's satisfaction from the systems acquired a number of years ago. Supplying our customers innovative and cutting edge systems, supported by our vast operational experience in electro-optic payload systems, positions us as one of the world's leading EO payloads providers.”
DCoMPASS (Digital Compact Multi Purpose Advanced Stabilized System) is a highly stabilized, low weight, multi-sensor electro-optical (EO) payload system, providing solutions for airborne applications (both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft) as well as for land and naval platforms. Offering cutting edge optical technology for 24/7 observation with cutting edge day and night "ISTAR" capabilities (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance), DCoMPASS allows optimal use even in the harshest of weather conditions.
