Elbit Systems Ltd., Israel’s largest non-government-owned defense company, said Thursday a unit has won a $150 million deal with the Australian Department of Defence to provide support services to the Australian Defence Force for its battle management systems.

The contract won by Elbit Systems of Australia Pty Ltd. is for five years, with optional extensions of up to seven years.

“The ADF is a strategic partner of Elbit Systems and this contract represents the long-term commitment of Elbit Systems to support the ADF digitization effort,” said Yehuda (Udi) Vered, general manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I. “This is a major contract for Elbit Systems of Australia that will significantly enhance and strengthen its local engineering and support capabilities.”

Elbit Systems is an international high-tech company that develops a wide range of products and systems used for both homeland security and for civilian purposes.
