The Israel Ministry of Defense signed a multi-year contract with Elbit Systems to provide and maintain electro-optical systems.

The various systems include long-range deployable observation systems, thermal weapon sights, and night vision equipment. These systems will provide the Israel Defence Forces with observation capabilities, target acquisition, and enemy exposure in various combat scenarios during day and nighttime.

The contract will be executed for over ten years and is valued at approximately $95 million, and includes the supply and maintenance of advanced electro-optical systems for IDF soldiers in both compulsory and reserve service.

Elbit has a range of electro-optic systems from direct infrared countermeasure (DIRCM) systems for the protection of aircraft to payloads for space, airborne, naval and land-based missions, to head up displays (HUD) and advanced target acquisition systems (TAS), as well as laser, thermal imaging (TI) systems, HLS solutions, ground integrated sights and I2 night vision systems for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).

The company’s products and systems have been successfully deployed by major defence forces such as the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy, several NATO armed forces, the Israel Defence Forces and additional modern defence and homeland security forces around the world.
