Elbit Systems Wins $100M Israeli Radio Order
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 | Comments

Elbit Systems was awarded a $100 million contract by the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMOD) for the supply of advanced radio systems. The company will manufacture and provide hundreds of radio systems during five years.

In addition, Elbit Systems is expected to receive an additional order to provide repair and maintenance services for 15 years. Elbit Systems will expand its manufacturing and maintenance site in Arad to include 100 employees, making it a center of excellence for manufacturing and maintenance of advanced radio systems for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Under the contract, Elbit Systems will provide the IDF with handheld, vehicle-mounted and airborne third-generation software-defined radios (SDRs), enabling advanced network services at a high security level. The maintenance activity will be performed under an outsourcing model, as part of the Israeli Defense Ministry's strategy to establish a full array of radio systems at high operational availability while reducing maintenance expenses.
