TEL AVIV, March 17 (Reuters) - Israeli defence contractor Elbit Systems said its wholly owned subsidiary Elisra won a contract worth about $115 million to supply an Asian customer with electronic warfare (EW) systems for multi-purpose land missions.

The systems will be delivered over two years, Elbit said on Sunday.

"We are experiencing a growing global demand for various types of EW systems and I trust that further customers will follow and select our advanced systems as their preferred solution," said Edgar Maimon, general manager of Elisra.
