Elbit Systems Awarded A Follow-On Contract By The IMOD Valued At Approximately $30 Million To Integrate F-15 Training Capabilities Into The Israel Air Force's Mission Training Center

HAIFA, Israel, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced today that it was awarded a follow-on contract by the Israel Ministry of Defense ("IMOD") Procurement Administration, valued at approximately $30 million, to integrate the F-15 array into the Mission Training Center ("MTC") Elbit Systems is establishing for the Israeli Air Force ("IAF"). The contract will be performed over fifteen years.

Elbit Systems was previously awarded a contract by the IMOD to establish the F-16 training center for the IAF, through a PFI (Private Finance Initiative) program. The new follow-on contract for the integration of the F-15 array will enable the IAF fighter aircraft array to perform joint mission training in operational flights and formation, as well as to perform joint training with other armed forces.

The MTC marks a significant breakthrough in the operational training sector as it enables training in various mission scenarios, in varying war zones and in the relevant threat environment of each war zone, providing a new training capability which has not yet been available to the IAF.

Yoram Shmueli, Co-General Manager of Elbit Systems' Aerospace Division, noted: "The inclusion of the F-15 array in the MTC attests to the IMOD and the IAF's satisfaction with the significant progress achieved in the establishment of the center. The Mission Training System was developed based upon an understanding of the modern combat doctrines, operating multiple forces, therefore requiring joint-force training of the various forces. We are proud to have been selected by the IMOD and we trust that our extensive experience in the training field for air, land and sea, as well as our systemic understanding and vast experience in operating PFI projects, will provide the IMOD and the IDF with the ultimate solution for training fighter pilots."
