The U.S. Army awarded Elbit Systems of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Limited [ESLT], an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) five-year contract worth up to $102 million to provide and field mortar fire control systems for the service, the company said Thursday.
The mortar fire control systems consist of Mortar Fire Control Systems Mounted (MFCS-M), Mortar Fire Control Systems Dismounted (MFCS-D), and a lightweight handheld mortar ballistic computer.
The company said its system improves mission success through greater accuracy while reducing potential exposure to enemies.
“Elbit Systems of America provides soldiers enhanced capabilities and fire power to perform combat missions,” Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said in a statement.
The $102 million value is the maximum possible value if the award is fully ordered.
