TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Israeli defense electronics firm Elbit Systems said on Thursday its American subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, won a deal worth as much as $102 million from the United States Army to provide and maintain mortar fire control systems.
The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, if fully ordered, will be carried out over five years.
Elbit said the shipment of mortar fire control systems — both mounted and dismounted — along with a lightweight handheld mortar ballistic computer, will improve the accuracy of mortars.
In November, Elbit won a five-year contract worth as much as $103 million for the production of mortar weapons systems for the U.S. Army.
