Elbit to Provide IAF Hercules Avionics Upgrades

Elbit Systems has been awarded a $15 million contract from Israel's Ministry of Defense to provide avionics upgrades for the Israeli Air Force's (IAF) fleet of C-130 military transport aircraft. 
 
Under the two-year contract, Elbit will provide the IAF with the capabilities to allow the aircraft to meet international Communications Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) standards and the ability to operate within commercial airspace.
 
Yoram Shmuely, general manager of Elbit's aerospace division, said the company has witnessed a "growing demand for operability of transport aircraft in commercial airspace." Shmuely believes more customers will be looking for similar upgrades to their transport fleets in the near future.
