Elbit will provide its directed infrared counter measure system for Boeing military fixed-wing and vertical-lift aircraft, Boeing said Tuesday.
Roger Krone, Boeing president of network and space systems, said the company aims to provide customers new technology by partnering with firms worldwide.
Joseph Ackerman, Elbit president and CEO, said the companies are aiming to create synergistic value in the self-defense technology market.
The systems, built by subsidiary Elbit Systems Electro-optics ELOP Ltd., are intended to protect aircraft from common battlefield threats.
Both Boeing’s network and space systems and military aircraft organizations are aiming to integrate the systems onto new and existing aircraft, the company said.
