Elbit Systems has secured a contract to provide the armed forces of an Asia-Pacific nation with multi-domain, combat networked, warfare capabilities.  

According to the Israel-based technology company, the four-year contract is valued at $548m.

Further details about the country and delivery have not been disclosed.

The combat networked capabilities are aimed at increasing operational effectiveness, decision-making, and interoperability across platforms and systems.

Under the terms of the contract, Elbit Systems will deliver an integrated solution that consists of ELBIT TIGER-X networking middleware, and a TORCH-X based suite of airborne, land, and ship-borne command and control applications.

The company will also provide the customer with modernised waveforms and various E-LynX Software Defined Radio systems with airborne, vehicular, handheld, and shipborne configurations.

The programme will see co-development efforts and the transfer of knowledge to help the personnel adapt to the new technology efficiently.

Elbit Systems president and CEO Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis said: “We witness a growing recognition by armed forces of the essentiality of digitisation and the capability to conduct interoperable multi-domain operations, especially in light of the lessons learned from recent conflicts.

“This significant contract award to execute a military-wide, networked warfare programme further validates the leading position we hold in the growing areas of C4ISR and multi-domain networked warfare.”

Elbit Systems has been offering networked warfare programmes to Switzerland, Israel, the UK, Sweden, and Canada, among others.

In April this year, Elbit Systems’ Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) ICAVS(D) entered service with the British Army after the completing acceptance tests.
