Elbit’s fully autonomous laser-based system provides comprehensive defense against sophisticated heat-seeking ground-to-air missiles.
Elbit Systems, an Israeli aerospace and defense company, has signed a contract with NATO to deliver anti-missile systems for its tanker transport plane fleet.
Elbit announced the five-year deal Tuesday with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA).
“The contract includes the establishment of a service center, located at NSPA, to provide support and logistics to the system,” stated Elbit.
Elbit was also given a follow-up contract from NSPA for an additional J-Music system, which is part of the MUSIC DIRCM family. The fully autonomous laser-based system provides comprehensive defense against sophisticated heat-seeking ground-to-air missiles.
Oren Sabag, general manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR & EW, said, “Demand for our DIRCM systems is growing due to increased threats posed to aircraft. We are proud to provide NATO with a logistics and service center for local repair and maintenance of our systems.”
