HAIFA, Israel, March 28, 2011 — Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that its wholly owned US subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was awarded a $9.6 million contract by the US Marine Corps System Command at Quantico, Va., to build the joint terminal attack controller laser target designator (JTAC LTD).

The JTAC LTD, which features a high-power near-infrared laser pointer for nighttime conditions, is a lightweight, battery-powered laser target designator and marker. It is small enough to be carried by foot-mobile Marines, enabling them to designate targets for laser-guided munitions.

The JTAC LTD incorporates Elbit Systems’ miniaturized Rattler designator, currently in full-scale production and implemented on numerous airborne and ground-based programs. The JTAC LTD also provides target hand-off to aircraft laser spot trackers. The system incorporates the latest advances in laser generation and battery power technologies.

The entire project, including production, supplying spares and training, will take a year. The contract also contains options for logistics support, which, if exercised, will bring its value to $10.8 million.
