Elbit Systems announced today that it was awarded a $240 million contract to provide a wide array of defense electronic systems to an unnamed country in Africa.

The contract, which will be performed over a two-year period, is for Elbit's Directed Infra-red Counter Measure systems to protect aircraft from shoulder-fired missiles, which include Missile Warning Systems (MWS), radio and communication systems, land-based systems, and helicopters upgrade.

“We are proud to have won this contract, allowing us to provide our customers with a variety of systems and capabilities from different fields, a growing trend we have witnessed lately in many countries," said Elbit CEO Bezalel Machlis.

"Our unique structure enables the customer to benefit from the synergy of its overall capabilities while, at the same time, focus on its requirements. Our cutting-edge technologies and operational know-how allow us to customize our solutions and tailor them to our customer’s needs, and we hope others will follow this trend".
