Real-Time Laboratories to Supply Components for ABRAMS

Elbit Systems Subsidiary Will Develop Turret Distribution Manifold

Real-Time Laboratories, LLC (RTL) – a subsidiary of Elbit Systems of America, has been selected by the US Army to develop Turret Distribution Manifolds (TDM) for the M1 ABRAMS main battle tank.

A hydraulic component that takes commands from the gunner’s and commander’s control handles to rotate the tank’s turret, raise or lower the gun barrel or handle ammunition, the Turret Distribution Manifold is essential to operating the ABRAMS. Designed by RTL, the technology remains a trusted, dependable solution. The company currently produces seven components for the vehicle.

Real-Time Laboratories has a long history with the M1 ABRAMS tank. We understand this platform and are continuing to refine various components, so they’re optimal for the soldiers operating these large battle tanks,” commented RTL General Manager, Bob Knabe.
