Elbit Systems Awarded $80 M Contract By An Asian Country To Provide Tactical Computers And Other Command & Control Systems

(Haifa, Israel, July 3, 2007) -- Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT) announced today it was awarded a contract valued at approximately $80 million to supply tactical computers and other command & control systems to an Asian country

The contract will be performed over the next four years and will include the supply of Enhanced Tactical Computers (ETC), advanced communication controllers and additional command & control packages.

The ETC is one of the major building blocks for Elbit Systems' Command, Control, Communication, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) systems. The ruggedized, high performance PC based computer is widely used by armies worldwide. It is the latest generation of a long line of tactical terminals, fully complying with the operational requirements and the harsh conditions of the modern battlefield. Equipped with all types of communication interfaces and powerful display features, the ETC enables the user in the field to achieve a new level of real-time situation awareness in combat.
The tactical communication device embedded in the ETC is used together with the data communication software to enable communication over a vast selection of modern military media, among which are analog and digital radios, field wire-line, wireless LAN and data radios.

At a snap guess, without looking into this further, I'd guess Singapore. They're the only Asian country that comes to mind that would have the sort of relationship with Israel, as well as the needed technical background, for such purchase. I would think that other advanced Asian nations (i.e. Japan and South Korea) would either use an indigenously system developed system, or purchase one from the US.

Could very well be wrong though

-Cheers

-Yeah, my best guess is that they're on they're way to India too.
I know Israel has a lot of respect for India. They have many joint projects and India already owns a lot of Israeli arms,etc, (a US" okay" would be necessary though). I'm not sure if aaaditya has the up to the minute knowledge of the aircraft deal, but I think we'd (US) "bless the deal" if we thought there's a better chance of selling the F-16s to India. I think the F-16I is the only american plane that's a legit possibility. Thinking about it more, the F-16I (Israel/India), would have many of the same components, and pretty much be able to work well with all other american/israeli systems, right off of the shelf (right away, less problems).

-my two other guesses are: singapore (as mouse said) or japan.

I'll say India too, for a couple of reasons ...

i) The Singapore Army's C4I or battle management system is already pretty much in place, having achieved IOC just last year.
ii) ST's US subsidiary won a contract a few years back to supply ruggedised laptops to the US Army worth IIRC about US$200m.

Given that Singapore already has both hardware and software capabilities in place ... India
