An Australian and an Israeli company are working together to bid for the Australian Department of Defence's JP 129 contract for the supply of tactical unmanned airborne vehicles.

The JP 129 project is designed to provide the Australian Army with an airborne surveillance system for use in land operations and holds important potential for future UAV-related business in Australia.

Israel's Elbit Systems, with its wide range of proven TUAVs of various sizes and different capabilities, using a common ground control and data management facility, brings to the team its class-leading Hermes advanced unmanned airborne vehicles and ground control stations.

Elbit can be found at Stand A835.
