Elbit Systems Ltd.

The contract will be performed during 2015. Elbit Systems said the amount of the contract was not material to the company.

Elops Multi Spectral Infrared Countermeasure (MUSIC) systems are high-performance, fiber-laser based DIRCM solutions for protecting aircraft against heat seeking ground to air missiles (MANPADS). These systems integrate advanced fiber laser technology together with a high rate thermal camera and a small, highly dynamic mirror turret to provide effective, reliable and affordable protection to all types of aircraft and under all operational conditions.

Elbit Systems Electro-opticsElop Ltd. general manager Adi Dar said, In addition to being selected by a new customer, this award represents the inclusion of a new platform, the Blackhawk, to the broad portfolio of platforms already equipped with our unique DIRCM systems including our MUSIC version for small platforms such as helicopters. Based on the growing demand for DIRCM as the preferred solution by customers worldwide, we hope that additional customers will follow and select our systems.”
