Elbit Systems Ltd has been awarded an approximately $220 million contract to supply precision guidance kits for airborne munitions to a country in Asia-Pacific.
Under the contract, which will be performed over a period of 15 months, Elbit Systems will supply the Lizard precision guidance kit for general purpose airborne warheads.
The Lizard is a laser-based precision guidance kit enabling general purpose airborne warheads, of both Western and Eastern versions, to engage targets, including fast moving ones, with high accuracy.
“There is an increase in the demand for our precision fire capabilities as high accuracy has become an operational imperative across all domains of operations,” said Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, Elbit Systems President & CEO. “Armed forces around the globe are requiring solutions that enable efficient conversion of ammunition stockpiles into a capability that is relevant in modern warfare, especially in light of lessons learned from recent military conflicts.”
