Elbit to Supply Satellite-on-the-Move Systems for Use by the Canadian Armed Forces

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE :ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced today that it was awarded a contract by Rheinmetall Canada Inc. to provide ELSAT 2100 Satellite-on-the-Move (SOTM) systems for use by the Canadian Armed Forces. The contract value, which is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems, will be performed over an 18-month period.

The ELSAT 2100 SOTM system allows high data rate broadband capabilities at a cost effective price. It can be installed on a variety of platforms and is unique in its low profile and small footprint. As part of this new solution, Elbit Systems offers a compact low profile SOTM antenna system that provides broadband communication in Ku, X and Ka frequency bands anywhere, anytime, while using military and commercial satellites, including the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellites network which is accessible to only a few companies in the world.

Yehuda (Udi) Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I Division, commented: "The SOTM contract is an important milestone in our satellite communication activity. The Canadian Armed Forces are technologically advanced and innovative, and I trust that additional customers will follow and select our systems. The modern battlefield requires very reliable, high data rate capabilities to be provided to numerous users simultaneously and in often adverse weather conditions. Our SOTM communication solution meets these rigorous requirements".
