Hand Stations and Circuit Cards for Crew Interaction
Elbit Systems of America has received a five-year $79 million (€66.4 million) contract for gunner and commander hand stations and circuit cards for US Army BRADLEY IFVs, the company announced on 31 August.
The gunner hand stations enable crew members to target and fire accurately and work in concert with the commander hand stations, which drive the IFV’s turret and initiate signals to the turret fire control systems. The circuit cards provide processing and power supply to the hand station units.
President & CEO Raanan Horowitz characterized the contract as offering “critical ground vehicle modernisation solutions for the US Army to support accuracy and lethality for soldiers. Receiving this task order to support the BRADLEY Infantry Fighting Vehicle means US ground forces remain equipped at all times with the very best technology to complete their missions.”
