HAIFA, Israel, Sept. 14, 2016 — High technology company Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced supply contract valued at over $90 million for its SPECTRO XR advanced electro-optic systems from an Asia-Pacific country.

SPECTRO XR is an ultralong-range, day/night, multispectral electro-optical ISTAR system. At its core is a large, multispectral imaging system combining multiple cameras into one, allowing SPECTRO XR to significantly improve performance without increasing size and weight. The implementation of fully digital sensors and lasers, with a very high level of stabilization, provides users with high performance in adverse weather conditions.

"We are very pleased with this contract, demonstrating Elbit Systems' ability to foresee the market's requirements and to develop the most cutting-edge systems suitable for our customers' demanding needs,” said Bezhalel Machlis, president and CEO of Elbit. “The variety of systems and solutions we have recently launched represent a range of different fields of activities within Elbit Systems for which our customers worldwide have expressed interest, and we hope other customers will follow."

A wide variety of command and control interfaces enables simple integration of the SPECTRO XR with various other systems onboard, such as mission computers, radar, data-links and helmet-mounted tracking systems.

Elbit is a provider of technology for a wide range of defense, homeland security and commercial programs throughout the world.
