Five-Year, $173 Million Contract for Unspecified Asian Customer
Elbit Systems has won a five-year, $173 million contract to supply naval remote controlled weapons stations (RCWS) to the Navy and Coast Guard of an unspecified Asia-Pacific nation.
Under the contract, the company will provide lightweight, fully-stabilised dual-axis RCWS to be installed onboard a wide range of vessels. The RCWS to be provided feature a 12.7mm machine gun and ammunition, Elbit Systems’ advanced fire control system and its modular electro-optic suite.
“We are pleased with this contract award that attests to the quality of our systems. I am confident that the demand for the weapon stations we offer will continue to grow, as customers increasingly recognise our unique capacity to draw on an exceptionally broad portfolio to provide comprehensive operational solutions,” commented General Manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I, Yehuda Vered.
