JNS.org – The Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems recently announced a series of freshly signed deals worth more than $570 million.

Haifa-based Elbit develops defense electronic systems and operates in the fields of aerospace, land and naval systems, computers, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance systems, unmanned aircraft systems, electro-optics, signal intelligence, data links, and communications systems and radios.

On Tuesday, the company said that its US-based subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was awarded a $31.5 million contract by the Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime, a combat support agency in the US Defense Department, to provide the government with aviator night vision imaging system head-up displays. The work will be performed over a two-year period.

The statement came on the heels of another deal, announced last weekend, in which Elbit signed a $300 million contract to supply command and control systems to a large Asia-Pacific client. Elbit did not name the client.

Elbit also recently announced it had inked a $240 million contract to provide a wide array of defense electronic systems to an African nation. Elbit did not disclose the country.
