Israel’s Elbit Systems has been selected, as part of Thales Team, to participate in the final phase of the UK Watchkeeper Tactical Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) assessment.  


Watchkeeper will provide the UK's Armed Forces with a globally deployable capability to deliver imagery and intelligence to battlefield commanders and is a core element of the MoD's Network-Enabled Capability Strategy. 


Elbit Systems will now actively participate in the System Integration Assurance Phase (SIAP) as part of the Thales team, to demonstrate a high level of confidence in rapid system introduction to service and provision of system required capabilities. 


Thales' activities encompass optronics, air defence, sensors, communications and naval systems. The company is the UK's second largest defense contractor, having been a supplier to the MoD since the First World War. Thales now draws together, under one unifying brand name, businesses including Racal, Thomson Marconi Sonar, Shorts Missile Systems, Thorn EMI Electronics, Avimo and Pilkington Optronics. — (menareport.com)
