Elbit upgrade program expected to exceed $4 million
Israel’s Elbit Systems’ wholly owned subsidiary, Elop ElectroOptics Industries (El-Op), has received an order to upgrade the electro-optic observation and surveillance systems, previously supplied by El-Op to the Israeli Navy, which have been in operational service for more than ten years.
Follow-on orders are expected for the upgrade of additional systems and the total program value is expected to exceed four million dollars. The Multi Sensor Integrated System (MSIS), to be upgraded by El-Op, has demonstrated its operational capabilities in surveillance, target acquisition, weapon aiming and fire control missions.
Within the scope of the upgrade program, the current thermal imaging Forward Looking InfraRed (FLIR) camera will be replaced by a new state-of-the- art third generation FLIR camera. Developed and produced in house by El-Op, the new FLIR will enable MSIS operators to receive high quality and long-range video images. System electronics will also be upgraded.
Elbit Systems is an international defense electronics company engaged in a wide range of defense-related programs throughout the world, in the areas of aerospace, ground and naval systems, command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) and advanced electro-optic technologies. The company focuses on the upgrading of existing military platforms and developing new technologies for defense applications. — (menareport.com)
