Elbit Systems is to supply its SPECTRO XR multi-spectral electro-optical systems to the naval forces of an unspecified Asian nation. The contract is valued at approx. $80 million (€65 million).
Awarded after extensive and competitive technical evaluations, the contract is to be completed over a four-year period. The SPECTRO systems will be integrated onto a variety of maritime platforms.
SPECTRO XR is a multi-spectral long-range EO system that provides enhanced ISTAR capabilities, by day and night and in conditions of low visibility. The system uses artificial intelligence and applies multi-target video tracking, moving target indication and video motion detection to continuously scan for targets, derive operational insight and reduce the potential for human error.
“We see a growing demand for the SPECTRO XR system as naval and air forces increasingly seek advanced ISTAR solutions with the unique capacity to maintain superior terrain dominance, even in challenging visibility conditions,” commented Oren Sabag, Co-General Manager of the company’s ISTAR and EW division.
