The global defence prime has secured a contract to upgrade the Royal Swedish Navy’s systems integration capability.
The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) has awarded a contract to Elbit Systems subsidiary Elbit Systems Sweden AB for the supply of the Albatross Combat Management Systems (CMS) following a competitive tender process.
Elbit has been tasked with integrating the CMS across the Royal Swedish Navy’s Spårö Class mine countermeasure (MCM) vessels over a period of 34 months.
The Albatross CMS is billed as a scalable open architecture system, which leverages Elbit’s E-CIX platform to enable commanders and operators to receive a common operational picture correlating underwater detection and surface tracks.
The system draws from real-time data, live video streaming and imagery data, in a bid to expand the operational envelope, increase flexibility and enable effective decision making during MCM missions.
“We appreciate the trust placed by the Swedish Defense Material Administration and the Swedish Armed Forces in our solutions,” Tobias Wennberg, general manager of Elbit Systems Sweden, said.
“Elbit Systems sees a growing demand for its naval portfolio, with this award joining recent contract awards from maritime customers across Europe and Asia-Pacific.”
This is the latest contract awarded to an Elbit Systems subsidiary, following Brazilian subsidiary AEL Sistemas SA's receipt of a deal to supply additional Hermes 900 UAS to the Brazilian Air Force.
Last month, the company also secured a $350 million contract to supply an array of land systems to an undisclosed international customer.
