IAI – ELTA Systems was recently awarded a prestigious contract for the modernization and upgrade of a national level ground based SIGINT and EW system for a European customer.

The contract is valued in excess of 150M$, and includes numerous fixed sites and mobile systems, which will be based on ELTA’s advanced ELI-6063 integrated SIGINT and EW systems, with subcontractors from several leading European defence companies.
