Elbit Systems has been awarded various contracts to supply a number of types of laser systems to Israeli and North American military customers. The laser systems will be implemented in several airborne applications, including helicopters and UAVs. The orders were received by the company's Israeli operation, Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop (Elop) and are to be delivered over the next two years.
Elop develops technologies based on a wide range of diode-pumped lasers and fibre lasers, for applications such as laser designators, laser radars and laser-based airborne defence systems. These technologies enable the implementation of high-quality, compact and lightweight laser systems for a wide range of applications.
