Elbit Systems Of America Delivering SATCOM Amplifiers For Army Aviation

Stocks in this article: ESLT

FORT WORTH, Texas, October 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Earlier this year, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., was awarded a contract for TC-100L amplifiers as part of a weight reduction initiative for the US Army's OH-58 Kiowa Warrior. Deliveries of the TC-100L SATCOM amplifiers are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.  

With a team of experienced engineers and a highly qualified work force, Elbit Systems of America designs, manufactures, and maintains their advanced communications amplifier product line in Fort Worth, Texas, delivering hundreds of high power amplifiers to the US Navy, Air Force, and Army each year. Since 2010, on an existing Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with the Army's Aviation Applied Technology Directorate, Elbit has delivered over 300 TC-100D SATCOM amplifiers for the Army's Special Operations rotary wing platforms.

"Elbit Systems of America has years of experience providing integrated solutions for the Army's rotary-wing fleet, which includes the OH-58, AH-64, CH-47, and the UH-60. Our engineers understand the importance of designing to solve size and weight challenges," says Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "If it is a concern for the pilot, it is a concern for us. We are committed to providing advanced and reliable communications technology in small, lightweight, compact enclosures to meet the needs of our Army Aviators."

Recognizing the need to add capability while minimizing platform weight, Elbit also developed a dual-channel communications amplifier that supports the Army's legacy (ARC-201) radios along with the new Joint Tactical Radio System's (JTRS) airborne radios running SRW & WNW waveforms.  Elbit's dual-channel avionic amplifier is smaller and lighter than the Army's current IFM amplifier and provides additional JTRS capability, allowing the Army to field new technology, maintain current capability, and reduce platform weight.
