Three-Year Contract Valued at Potential £40 Million
Elbit Systems announced on 2 October that its British subsidiary, Elbit Systems UK Ltd., has been awarded a contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to provide the MORPHEUS Battlefield Management Application (BMA).
The initial contract of approx. £10 million (€11.3 million) will be performed over a three-year period. Potential maximum value if all options were to be exercised rises to approx. £40 million. Under the contract Elbit Systems UK will provide the British Army with an operationally-proven battle management application for both headquarters and tactical units, based on TORC2H, Elbit Systems’ command and control platform that has been delivered to multiple customers worldwide, including to the Australian Defence Forces as part of its Land 200 Tranche 2 battle management system.
“We are proud to have been selected by the UK MoD to supply the MORPHEUS BMA, providing a valuable capability for the British Army. In doing so we will be bringing Elbit Systems’ operationally-proven capability and technological edge into the UK, adapting it for use and delivering it together with our local partners,” commented Elbit Systems UK CEO, Martin Fausset.
