Elbit Systems has announced today that it was awarded a contract worth approximately $80 million by a country in Asia-Pacific to provide its SPECTRO XR multi-spectral electro-optic (EO) system for maritime forces. The contract followed a competitive technical evaluation and will be valid for a period of four years.


Per the agreement, Elbit Systems will supply SPECTRO XR EO systems that will be integrated within a variety of maritime platforms. Its multi-spectral long-range EO system provides air, naval, and land forces with enhanced intelligence, surveillance, and target acquisition capabilities in day and night and in low-visibility conditions such as smoke, fog, or dust.
