Another Success for Elbit's MUSIC Family of DIRCM Systems

  • Elbit Awarded an Approximately $26.5 M Contract to Supply Advanced DIRCM Systems to an Asia-Pacific Country

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE:ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced today that it was awarded a contract to supply commercial multi-spectral infrared countermeasures (C-MUSIC™) systems to be implemented onboard a wide body jet aircraft of a country in the Asia-Pacific region.
