Elbit Systems Awarded Additional Contract to Supply EW Systems to the German Air Force

Israel, June 14, 2023 – Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT, TASE: ESLT) (“Elbit Systems” or “the Company”) announced today that it was awarded an additional contract by Airbus Helicopters for the Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support, for the provision of Airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) self-protection systems for the CH‑53 GS/GE transport helicopters, as part of the platform upgrade program led by Airbus Helicopters.

Under the contract, Elbit Systems, supported by Elbit Systems Deutschland, will provide digital Radar Warning Receivers (RWR), EW Controllers (EWC) and Counter Measure Dispensing Systems (CMDS). The digital RWR and EWC rapidly detect and accurately locate a wide range of threats, even in a dense EW environment, enabling reliable and timely warning and effective protection. The systems feature complete and independent threat programmability, enabling seamless update of emitter libraries as well as flight data recording for pilotdebriefing and training. Coupled with the CMDS the entire system provides the German Air Force with a high level of operational effectiveness.

Oren Sabag, General Manager, Elbit Systems ISTAR and EW: “We are proud to cooperate with Airbus Helicopters and appreciate the trust that the German Air Force places in our leading technologies that will continue to provide enhanced survivability and to increase mission effectiveness.”

Mit viel Staub landet am 25.09.2009 der Hubschrauber CH-53 ist im Feldlager Feyzabad. Eine Staublandung gehört in Afghanistan zur Tagesordnung und stellt die Besatzungen der CH-53 GS vor größte Herausforderungen. Hierbei gilt es im Team zusammenzuarbeiten. Verständliche Kommandos und Ansagen beim Landevorgang sind dabei die Lebensversicherung.
