Elbit Systems Awarded $109 M Contract by BSH to Supply Iron Fist Active Protection System for the CV90 Platform

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESLT and TASE: ESLT) announced today that it was awarded a contract worth $109 million to supply BAE Systems Hägglunds (BSH) the Iron Fist Active Protection System (APS) for its CV90 platform, for a European customer. The contract will be carried out over three years.

The Iron Fist APS is characterized by low volume, weight and power requirements. The system provides armored platforms with 360-degree protection from a wide variety of anti-armor threats, such as rocket-propelled grenades (RPG) and up to KE tank rounds in both open terrain and urban environments.

The APS sensor combines the dual technologies of search-and-track radar and infra-red cameras with data fusion algorithms, allowing for the rapid, reliable and accurate threat detection, identification and tracking. The system destroys threats by launching an explosive charge toward the incoming threat’s vicinity and exploding it to create a shock wave that breaks apart or deflects the threat at a safe distance from the protected platform.
