Israeli defense electronics company Elbit Systems announced on Monday that it has been awarded an $11 million contract to supply an integrated maritime C4ISR system to an Asia-Pacific navy.
The contract, to be carried out over a two-year period, will include interconnected coastal sensor towers, naval command centers and maritime C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence) capabilities, as well as ongoing maintenance. The project will support commanders and other users (headquarters, command centers, coastal observation posts and vessels) throughout routine and special operations, and will also be used for training and simulation.
Elbit Systems Land & C4I general manager Yehuda Vered said: “As a leading C4ISR company, we were able to provide the customer with a complete situational awareness and networked real-time solution, integrating radar, electro-optic systems, radio and communications systems. We witness a growing demand from coastal agencies and navies that are required to secure ports, dams, harbors and waterways while encountering terrorism, illegal immigration, enemy operations and a high volume of vessels and passengers traveling at sea.”
