Elbit Signs Contract to Provide DIRCM Service Center for NATO

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESLT and TASE: ESLT) (“Elbit Systems” or the “Company”) announced today the signature of a five-year in-service support contract with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) for the Direct Infrared Counter Measures (“DIRCM”) systems supplied to the Multinational Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) fleet. The contract includes the establishment of a service center, located at NSPA, to provide support and logistics to the system.

Equipped to provide comprehensive support to the NATO MRTT fleet equipped with the DIRCM system, the NSPA dedicated facility, in Luxembourg, will be an essential resource for the fleet, providing the necessary expertise, equipment, and maintenance. The center will provide repair, spare parts and maintenance services to ensure that all systems are operating at optimal levels.

In addition, Elbit was awarded a follow-up contract from NSPA for an additional J-Music system, part of the MUSIC DIRCM family. The laser-based fully autonomous system provides comprehensive protection against advanced heat-seeking ground-to-air missiles. To date, seven systems are already integrated, certified and operational on NATO MRTTs.
