Elbit Systems’ subsidiary Elbit Systems of America has secured two separate contracts from the US Army and SOSSEC to provide equipment in support of warfighters.
The company has won an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide 120mm mortar systems for the US Army.
Works will be taken up at Fort Worth in Texas for a period of five years.
The contract holds a maximum potential value of over $49m.
As part of an initial delivery of the order, worth $10m, works will be executed over a span of two years.
Elbit Systems of America president and CEO Raanan Horowitz said: “Being a trusted provider of choice for critical missions and needs is part of our vision. I am honoured the US Army continues to value the solutions our company provides to US soldiers and we look forward to a continued partnership.”
Under the second contract, worth $10m, SOSSEC selected Elbit Systems of America to commence the second phase of development of an Advanced Low Light Level Sensor (ALLLS).
The ALLLS will support the US Army’s Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) 2.0 for soldiers.
SOSSEC manages the US Department of Defense’s System of Systems Consortium (SOSSEC) and Sensors, Communications, and Electronics Consortium (SCEC).
Works on the ALLLS will be executed through 2025.
The deal requires the company to build prototype cameras that will be used by the Night Vision team to perform laboratory and field testing, as well as experimentation.
The ALLLS integrates advanced situational awareness tools and high-resolution digital sensors to offer a single operating picture.
This will help soldiers make key decisions in the battlefield.
Horowitz said: “Innovation is what we do. Our workforce understands that breakthrough innovations require bold ideas and execution.
“We are committed, company-wide, to developing new capabilities for our customers. We’re excited to focus on the ALLLS project and accomplish the US Army’s needs while learning new methodologies along the way.”
