Elbit Systems Marks Another Success In Australia: Elbit Systems To Supply Battle Management Systems For The Royal Australian Navy

HAIFA, Israel, October 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT ("Elbit Systems"), announced today that it was awarded a contract from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for the supply of Battle Management Systems (BMS) for the Royal Australian Navy's landing craft. The contract is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems.

The systems are to be integrated into landing craft installed on board the Canberra Class Amphibious ships (LHD). The watercraft will enable transport of troops and equipment from the LHDs to the shore including where there are no fixed port facilities and will allow communication and connectivity with the Infantry Forces in joint operations.

Elbit Systems has been supplying its BMS to the Australian Army under the defence network-centric "Land 75/125" Program, one of the largest BMS programs in the world.

Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, General Manager of Elbit Systems' Land and C [ 4 ]I Division commented: "The fact that the Australian Defence Force, one of the most advanced and modern armies in the world, has decided to also equip its Navy with our Battle Management Systems, attests to its satisfaction with the quality and maturity of our systems". Machlis added: "This decision also reflects the need of world leading armies to enhance the connectivity and communication between their divisions, and we trust that additional customers will follow and select our advanced Battle Management Systems."
