[Avionics Today 12-29-2015] An unnamed Asia-Pacific country has awarded Elbit Systems a contract to supply a comprehensive airborne solution for use in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. The prime contractor for the program Elbit Systems' ISTAR Division will perform the contract, valued at approximately $50 million, over a three-year period.

The full-scale solution will further develop the customer's existing intelligence and surveillance capabilities, by upgrading Elbit Systems' already-deployed, long-range Electro-Optical (EO) cameras and sensors, and supplementing them with ELTA Systems Search and Rescue (SAR)/Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) reconnaissance systems. In addition, the solution will provide the ability to perform advanced functions such as mission planning, battlefield management, terrain analysis and simulation modeling, both before and during intelligence-gathering operations.
