Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that its subsidiary Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop Ltd. was awarded a contract to supply Portable Lightweight Designator/ Rangefinders (PLDR) and the Coral thermal imager to the German Armed Forces. The order is valued at approximately $5 million.

Elop's PLDR has a compact and lightweight design that can be carried by an individual soldier, yet is rugged enough to meet harsh environmental conditions. The designator system has a number of advanced features including a built-in tactical computer for target location calculations, an integrated spot camera and remote data transmission capability. A similar version of the PLDR has also recently been selected by the US Marine Corps.

This contract testifies to company's leading role in the growing market of advanced laser designator systems for defense and homeland security applications. Elop's laser designators and systems for land, air and naval applications are providing advanced solutions for modern day battlefield needs. The company is proud of the selection of their solution for a major NATO member such as Germany and believes that this selection will facilitate contracts with other potential customers in Europe and across the globe.
