Elbit Systems to supply tactical computers for Royal Netherlands Army

Elbit Systems has secured a contract to supply new vehicular tactical computers for the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA).

Elbit Systems has secured a contract to supply new vehicular tactical computers for the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA).

The $24m contract was awarded by the Dutch Ministry of Defence (MoD).

As agreed, Elbit Systems will replace older Enhanced Tactical Computers (ETC) installed on various vehicular platforms more than a decade ago with its seventh generation ETC MK7.

The new systems are equipped with improved command and control (C2) and tactical data processing capabilities, as well as a better security system to process and protect secured mission information.

Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber general manager Haim Delmar said: “We are pleased with our continuous involvement in digitisation programmes of the RNLA.

“We see the Netherlands as a key market for Elbit Systems and intend to continue our partnership with the Dutch MoD and strengthen our local industrial cooperation and investment.”

Contract work will be carried out over a 30-month period.

Headquartered in Israel, Elbit Systems is engaged in several defence, homeland security and commercial programmes across the world.

This latest order comes around a month after the Dutch MoD contracted Elbit Systems for additional digital soldier and vehicular systems for the RNLA.

The company was contracted to supply digital soldier systems and vehicular integration of improved combat network capabilities, including TORCH-XTM Dismounted Command and Control systems and E-LynXTM Software Defines Radio systems to RNLA.

The Israeli firm will also deliver XACT nv32 micro night vision monocular systems to the Netherlands.
