Elbit Systems announced it was awarded a contract to supply Electronic Warfare (EW) self-protection suites for a fighter aircraft that is being supplied to a NATO member country in Europe. As part of the contract, Elbit Systems will equip the aircraft with its EW self-protection suite, including Radar Warning Receivers (RWR) and Countermeasure Dispensing Systems (CMDS).
The operational and combat-proven RWR rapidly detects and accurately locates a wide range of enemy threats, even in a dense EW environment, enabling reliable and timely warnings to the aircrew, and an automated or manual response by the CMDS.
Oren Sabag, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR & EW said: “We are happy to continue our long-standing ability to supply our advanced electronic warfare solutions to our customers. The contract, which follows on previous contracts, illustrates the continued confidence in our systems.”
