Elbit Systems has secured a $153 million contract to provide a range of UAVs to the army of an unspecified country in Southeast Asia.
The package includes larger numbers of smaller UAVs, and unspecified number of the Hermes 450 tactical system, and universal ground control stations.
"This contract award underlines our competitive edge as armies increasingly view multi-layered UAS solutions as key to providing superior intelligence while maintaining a high level of operational flexibility,” says Elbit president and chief executive Bezhalel Machlis.
The contract will be performed over 22 months.
Earlier this year, various media reports suggested that Elbit was on the verge of selling the Philippines a large number of UAVs.
